D-Day 80th Anniversary, Liberation of Europe Pair

Commemorating both, the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings and the 80th anniversary of Operation Market Garden, Isle of Man Post Office (IOMPO) issues this two-part collection of ten stamps sharing powerful imagery and stories from two of the Second World War’s most significant campaigns.

This combined issue has been curated alongside Ivor Ramsden MBE, Director of the Manx Aviation and Military Museum. Issued on 29th April 2024 the ten stamps tell the stories of both campaigns: ‘D-Day 80 – The Road to Paris’ and ‘Operation Market Garden’. The first five stamps depict the ground-breaking Normandy landings of June 1944, advancing through to the liberation of Paris. The first stamp in this collection features footage captured on D-Day by Manxman Norman Clague of the Army Film and Photographic Unit, whose material is used for the first time upon a stamp.

The second half of this issue includes five stamps on Operation Market Garden, the bold Allied military endeavour to hasten the end of the conflict by securing key bridges and establishing a direct route into Germany through the Netherlands.

IOMPO releases this issue in partnership with the UK Government D-Day 80 campaign, honouring the brave heroes of the Battle of Normandy through this collection, remembering those from Manx-shores who lost their lives at war.
