French troops landing at Provence on 15 August 1944

For the 25th anniversary of the resistance and liberation, France used two stamps of which the 0.45 F stamp shows the landing of the French troops under command of the French General Lattre de Tassigny at the beaches in Provence in South France on 15 August 1944 http://www.cheminsdememoire.gouv.fr/en/ ... e-provence

About 120.000 French troops of which many were from Africa landed that day.

Have not anything on the two landing crafts or the warship in the background of the stamp.
