Stamps & postcards...Poczta i pocztowka

Article about: Polish 2nd Corps field mail. I believe that this envelope has the entire stamp set for this issue. Regards, Tony

    Default Stamps & postcards...Poczta i pocztowka

    Well, here are some examples of stamps issued by the Polish Information Center in New York.

    There are also some postwar stamps encouraging people to help relocate Polish Displaced Polish Persons ( DP's)

    I will post other philatelic items ( no pun intended) here in the future.
    Exile postcards, POW postcards, concentration camp mail, etc.

    Please contribute what you have in your collection.

    I do hope this is in keeping with the Forums mission.

    Here is another example of supportive stamps not not actual postage stamps.

    I have included some cancelled letters from the USA from during WWII. Note the names of the cities and the states they are in.

    Cheers,
    Piwo

    Boycott Hitlerite (Nazi) German goods stamp—from 1938 I believe. Not seen another one of this type before?
