Just wondering if any of our members collect D Day Anniversary Covers
I`m interested in seeing the commemorative covers. I edited this thread ..I would be interested in the ACTUAL JUNE6th 1944 dated covers as well.

How about ACTUAL D DAY covers?
I'm sure that many of us have material that was posted on or about June 6, 1944, perhaps even with messages referring to the event. I looked through my material, and I have nothing directly related to D Day. But, I would sure like to see some!

Ain't nothing like the REAL THING, baby.....

Thanks,
Paul

re: D DAY Covers

My contribution, shown below, from my World War II topical collection is a D Day 50th Anniversary Cover postmarked June 6, 1994 from the village of Bayeux, France located 9 miles from Omaha Beach. A Fleetwood cover, shown before on this forum under the WWII topic, I also scanned the back which has an unrealistic, glorified summary of "The Longest Day." It also has a June 4, 1994 first day of issue cancel for the 2 France stamps, Scott #2428 and #2429.

Scanned below from my postal history collection is a linen postcard that was actually cancelled on D Day, June 6, 1944, 75 years ago today.

re: D DAY Covers

On this day it is important to remember those who sacrificed live and limb for our freedoms. As war raged in both the east and west, folks at home also made sacrifices; cars could not be purchased for years, metal drives helped support the war effort, basic commodities like butter and gas were rationed. (Yet today we seem to think that not having cheap Asian merchandise or avocado toast is a real hardship?)

We need to redouble our efforts to teach, communicate, and ensure all generations understand the lessons that history teaches us. Philately can play a role.
