ISLE OF MAN D-DAY issues 2019

About D-Day 75
To mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Isle of Man Post Office is privileged to issue a new set of stamps, a dedicated collection honouring all the Manx men and women involved in the historic landings. Our set is a special 'stamp on stamp' design and includes the artwork from our 1994 collection.
Codenamed Operation Overlord, the battle began on 6th June 1944, also known as D-Day, when some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along a 50-mile stretch of the heavily fortified coast of France's Normandy region. The invasion was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history the Normandy beach landings.
This stamp-on-stamp presentation, derived from our 50th Anniversary of D Day 1994 commemorative issue depicts the most prominent military leaders of the Allied Forces who formulated plans which marked the start of a long and costly campaign to liberate north-west Europe from German occupation.

The Commanders featured on the stamps are:
General Dwight D. Eisenhower, US Army, Supreme Commander Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF).
Air Chief Marshall Sir Arthur Tedder RAF, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander.
Lt-Gen Omar Bradley, US Army, Commander 1st US Army.

The stamp and label of Armenia were issued for the 200th Anniversary of Admiral Lazar Serebryakov birth, and shows us a portrait of the Admiral with in the background and most probably a Russian warship not a name given, the only warship what I could find with a connection to the admiral was the POLTAVA launched in 1829, which he commanded from 1835 until 1836. If she is depict I am not sure?. On the label is a scene of a 19th century sea battle with a map of the Black Sea. Not given when this battle took place.
Lazar Serebryakov (Ghazar Artsatagortsian) by his birth name), born in 1795 was a Russian Navy Admiral of Armenian descent. He participated in the Russo-Turkish War, 1828-1829, serving in the Black Sea and Baltic fleets, commanding battleships. In 1838, he laid the foundation of the city of Novorossiysk. He also held top command positions during the Crimean war (1853-1856). He died in 1862.

From Mr. Gennadiy Sitnikov I received an image of a painting which shows one of the class of the POLTAVA of 1829.
There are too many differences between the image and the ship depict on the stamp that we can be sure the POLTAVE of 1829 is not depict.
