D-Day 75

Collection Issue Date: 22nd April 2019

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of D-Day

Isle of Man Post Office is honoured to present a set of eight stamps commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Normandy, which lasted from June 1944 to August 1944 and resulted in the Allied liberation of Western Europe from Nazi Germany's control.

Our set is a special 'stamp on stamp' design and includes the artwork from our 1994 collection. This is an officially licenced product of the MoD.

General The Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL, Patron of The Spirit of Normandy Trust said:
'I welcome the issue of the D-Day commemorative stamps issued by the Isle of Man Post Office which will serve as a visual reminder of the historical significance of D-Day and the subsequent battle for Normandy. This was the generation that literally "saved the world". We owe them nothing less than to salute their courage and honour the memory of those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.'

Issue Information

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.

The stamps are also featured on our Presentation Pack and First Day Cover,each accompanied by an illustrated card sharing excerpts from the D-Day archives of the Manx Aviation and Military Museum selected by curator Ivor Ramsden.

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:

General Dwight D. Eisenhower, US Army, Supreme Commander Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF).

Air Chief Marshall Sir Arthur Tedder RAF, Deputy Supreme Allied Commander.

Lt-Gen Omar Bradley, US Army, Commander 1st US Army.
