To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the People's Republic, 1944-54, Poland issued 10 stamps, the 1.55zt. value of which shows the Polish vessel Soldek alongside a wharf. A single-decked ship of 2,005 gross tons on dimensions 276.4ft. x 40.5ft. x 17.6ft., the Soldek was built by Zjednoczenie Stoczni Polskich at Gdansk to the order of the Polish Government and is managed by the Polish Steamship Company. She was engined by Huta Zgoda of Katowice, and made her maiden voyage in 1949.
