The postmark of the cover is also interesting : it bears a slogan that I understand as “For security use Fax and Burofax). A very clean postmark that does not actually cancel the stamps , by the way (it’s quite understandable, seeing the position of the stamps).
The second cover that I received is coming from Angel (thanks a lot).
The stamps of the cover have been issued on the 4th of July 2007 as an homage to the humanitarian and peace tasks carried out by the Spanish army all around the world. The stamp is devoted to the Armed Forces in Peace Missions, which act under the control of the UN. The stamp pictures the shoulders of uniformed soldiers. We can also see the famous blue cask, which is the symbol of these peace forces. And the earth glob symbolizes the fact that those forces may operate every where in the world.
(I’m having (once again) a three days weekend because of the Rugby World cup. I’m travelling to Edinburg to see New Zealand versus Scotland on Sunday. I’ll me back on my blog on Tuesday only. See you then.)
