The stamp shows us the landing of the Allied troops on Iwo-Jima in the morning of 19 February 1945.

The ships on the stamp are not identified, the mountain in the background is Mount Suribachi, where the famous photo was taken after the design of the stamp was made: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raising_t ... n_Iwo_Jima
