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:

The tall ship PALLADA, designed by Polish naval architect Zygmunt Choreń, is a Russian 354 feet (108 m) long three-masted frigate. It is considered the world's fastest sailing ship, as it holds the world speed record of 18.7 knots in the Sail Training International largest and most prestigious Class A. There exists a claim that during the circumnavigation of 2007-2008, PALLADA posted 18.8 knots, but this record still remains officially unrecognized.
PALLADA arrived in Kodiak, Alaska, on July 20, 2011, and was welcomed by hundreds of people who lined the waterfront. The Kodiak visit was the first stop of a North Pacific tour including Victoria, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Honolulu. The voyage commemorated the 270th anniversary of Russia's colonization of Alaska and the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering space flight.
2017 In service, same name and owner, IMO No 8511847.
