This First Day Cover was issued on 15th April 1968 to mark the start of the Dundee Students Charities Campaign - or "Rag Week" as it is known as.
I remember we went along as a family to the ones in the 60's (when I was primary school age) with our chosen location to view the procession being Princes Street. All the floats and students in fancy dress, rattling their cans collecting pennies from those of us who lined the streets. It was quite entertaining for a young school kid, but trying to chuck coins onto the passing floats was a bit hit & miss, although there were always plenty of student foot soldiers nearby to do the mopping up!
