Sunday Stamps - Liberation

Last week I shared a few stamps linked to ANZAC Day, which is commemorated on 25th April. I have reused those that were my favourites! and you can read that post HERE

Commemoration stamps 1935

Here is another favourite. This was produced by Jersey Post to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the liberation of the Island of Jersey from German Occupation.

I love the quote from Winston Churchill "....And our Dear Channel Islands are also to be freed today".

Regular readers will perhaps remember that last summer we visited Jersey and I was very moved by the War Tunnels . You can read the various posts about Jersey under this tag line and I wrote four posts about the War Tunnels - Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4

  1. I like the Channel Islands stamp and how it fitss into the overall scene.

  2. I remember your posts on the war tunnels - very moving. These are great stamps to add to the theme. thank you for joining in.

  3. That Jersey stamp couldn't have been a better fit to the theme.

  4. I've tramped those underground tunnels in Jersey too. How chilling for people to have lived under a harsh regime. Great set of stamps. I remember the Anzac alliance from when I was a child in Australia.
