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:

Macau issued in 2017 four stamps and a miniature sheet “Back to Common Roots” only the MS shows some watercraft, the smaller are sampans and the larger vessel on the left is a Chinese junk.

By the issues is given by the Macau Post:
The issuance of a series of four stamps and a philatelic block on 10 February 2017 by the Macao Post Office honors the artistic work of Lok Hei, which drew the daily life, religion, culture and architecture of Chinese and of Western peoples, who have coexisted in this land since the Ming Dynasty. These drawings, now printed on postage stamps, are part of a work with a total of 100 pen drawings, each one a meter wide, on a roll of Chinese painting.
The set of drawings shows aspects of the city of Macao at different times, from the most representative events in the areas of history, economy and religion, to customs and customs, through education, literature, theatre and cinema, press, radio and television, music and dance, to the architectural heritage and communities, having taken eight months to complete. This paragraph was transcribed from the information on the issue page, authored by Chan Kai Chon.
The stamps and the block were printed by Joh. Enschedé Security Print, the Netherlands, by offset lithography method. The first day envelope and the presentation page were edited.
