Sunday Stamps – Australia – ANZAC Day

I’ve gone off theme this week. On 25th April, New Zealanders and Australians celebrated ANZAC Day and in keeping with remembering that day, which ties in nicely with the A-Z Challenge I have kept to the theme of Australia. You can read the A-Z challenge posts via this tag line and read my ANZAC Day post HERE.

    Anzac Day is something I wasn't familiar with.

    Interesting how, in 1965, all the stamps were the same design.

    I also noted that PNG no longer celebrates/commemorates ANZAC. I wonder why they stopped? These stamps are from 1965.

    I've never seen any of these before, they are all terrific.
    I know ANZAC Day now commemorates the lost of New Zealanders and Australians lost in World Wars I and II and not just at Gallipoli but hadn't realised it extended to island nations as well. Wikipedia tells me that Papua New Guinea no longer celebrates it.

    Nice contrast between the old and modern stamps, both in design and the distance of time after the event.


  7. Very nice sets of stamps. I especially like the Pitcairns.


  8. Love the first 2 … I have a few Australian stamps of that era but have never seen these before.
