The first flying boat made for Canadian conditions was the Vickers Vedette commemorated in a transportation series issued in 1979.
|Canada - 15 November 1979|
First made in 1924 the Vedette gave improved access to lakes and rivers opened up by canoes. The three seater was designed for forest fire patrols and photographic work. It starred in mercy missions and saw some service with the RCAF until the beginning of WWII.
May 1949 saw China issue a stamp dedicated to victory in North Kiangsu. Today Jiangsu formerly Kiangsu, capital Nanjing, is an eastern central coastal province of the People's Republic of China. I presume that the victory refers to the war with Japan.
|China - 7 May 1949|
Victory stamps from New Zealand were issued in 1920 to celebrate the end of WWI.
|New Zealand - 27 January 1920|
The British Lion represents the British Empire with the allegorical figure of Peace.
