21st Independence Day of Israel
These two stamps released on 16.4.1969 to honor the Armoured Corps (tank) and the Navy (ship - destroyer) were issued to commemorate the 21st Independence Day in 1969 of Israel. One could write reams and reams on what the tank and the ship symbolize as far as Israel is concerned. Suffice it to say that this small nation has taken on the might of the surrounding Arab nations ever since their Independence in 1948. And mind you not just taken them on, but, taken them on successfully. Hats off to this great nation and its great people. Merja sent me this wonderful FDC.
