About Stamp

Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery believed that his soldiers would do anything he asked as long as they got "mail from home, the newspapers, and... plenty fo tea". For seventy-five years the Canadian Forces Postal Service has provided "mail from home" for the Canadian Forces. During both World Wars, the CFPS accomplished this by mobilizing many Post Office employees. Today, it forwards mail to restricted military zones in Canada and Europe, as well as other areas where Canadians serve in United Nations peacekeeping operations. The stamp was designed by Montreal graphic designer Jacques DesRosiers. The stamp image is based on a wartime photograph of military personnel handling letters and parcel.
