Sunday Stamps II A-Z 'U' - Uganda, Uruguay

As we get towards the end of the alphabet it seems to be getting harder each week. However I've managed to maintain a link back to 'T'.

Uganda, Kenya, Tanganyika - 1 June 1954
The Owen Falls Dam, later named Nalubaale, is on the White Nile in Uganda near the city of Jinja, 4 kilometres from the point at which the river leaves Lake Victoria.

Switching continents now to South America, 17 June 1966 saw the issue of a stamp commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Engineers.

To see more stamps just for 'U' please visit the links at Sunday-stamps-II-159.

Happy New Year everyone.

Great stamps for U. I' impressed you have one from Uruguay.

Great stamps, and always a nice surprise which countries you choose for Sunday Stamps!
Happy New Year!

Fancy uniform for these engineers.
I am binge watching Joanna Lumley's trip up the Nile this afternoon, I wonder if she'll pass by/mention this dam.

I've never got a letter form Uruguay, I think (neither from Uganda!).

Hi Bob - Happy New Year to you both ... and all the best in the coming year - cheers Hilary

A fine pair of epaulettes although their symbol of a castle seems a bit anachronistic. A nice bright stamp to send in the post.
