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:

Suriname issued in 1992 one stamp for the expelling of the Jews from Spain in 1492, the stamp shows a Spanish, Portuguese sailing ship from that time and named by Stanley Gibbons as a “nau”. The rigging looks a bit strange on the nau depict on the stamp, it shows a four mast ship, square sails on the fore and main mast and two lateen sails on the other two masts. Most naus carry on the fore and main mast also a topsail not visible on the stamp.

Nau is the generic term for a 14th to 16th century ship in Catalan, Spain. During the 15th -17th centuries could be synonymous with “nef”, “carrack” or “galleon; later with a frigate type vessel. Sometimes term was given to the major ship in a convoy. Some scholars include in the term all vessels of western origin with keels. Many Basque built in the 16th century.
In general high-sided with castles forward and aft, 2 – 3 decks, beamy, short keel; deep hull and a midline rudder. Estimated to have been between 120 – 500 ton.

Wikipedia has more on the settlement of the Jews in Suriname.
Suriname has the oldest Jewish community in the Americas. During the Inquisition in Portugal and Spain around 1500, many Jews fled to the Netherlands and the Dutch colonies to escape social discrimination and inquisitorial persecution, sometimes including torture and condemnation to the stake. Those who were converted to the Catholic faith were called New Christians, conversos, and, less often, "Marranos". The stadtholder of the King of Portugal gave those who wanted to depart some time to let them settle, and supplied them with 16 ships and safe conduct to leave for the Netherlands. The Dutch government gave an opportunity to settle in Brazil (at that time part of Brazil was a colony of the Netherlands). Most found their home in Recife, and merchants became cocoa growers. But the Portuguese in Brazil forced many Jews to move into the northern Dutch colonies in the Americas, The Guyanas. Jews settled in Suriname in 1639.

Suriname was one of the most important centers of the Jewish population in the Western Hemisphere, and Jews there were planters and slaveholders.

For a few years, when World War II arrived, many Jewish refugees from the Netherlands and other parts of Europe fled to Suriname. Today, 2,765 Jews live in Suriname.
