On June 6, 2014, the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy will be celebrated. I have always been interested in this battle and the preparations taken to ensure its success starting with the failed raid on Dieppe. I guess the book "The Longest Day" by Cornelius Ryan sparked my interest and I have watched the movie by the same name many times.
Please show your stamps of this battle.
Canadian stamp Scott #2043 issued on Jun 6, 2004 celebrating the 60th anniversary of the landing of Canadian forces on the beaches of Normandy. It depicts the initial landings on Juno beach.
Canadian stamp Scott #1537 issued Nov. 7, 1994 is one of a set of four stamps depicting WW2 events during 1944. This particular stamp shows some of the 15,000 Canadian troops attacking Juno beach. Mike
I don’t really have much to add that hasn’t already been put up. On the other hand, I don’t want to be left out of remembering one of the finest sacrifices of the Greatest Generation. So here’s the one item I can contribute from the US WWII series. This is the 1944 block of 10, issued on the 50th anniversary of D-Day. The D-Day stamp is the middle stamp in the top row.
