Two Canadian infantry regiments celebrate their 75th anniversaries this year. To honour the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) and the Royal 22e Régiment, Canada Post Corporation is issuing two se tenant commemorative stamps. Both regiments were formed in 1914 and both distinguished themselves during the First and Second World Wars and the Korean conflict. Tiit Telmet, Normand Fontaine and Joseph Gault have shown the Royal 22e Régiment in the First World War going "over the top" in France. They've shown the PPCLI setting out on a night patrol in Korea. These stamps are printed so that each design runs left to right across the pane. Combination Official First Day Covers will show vertical stamp pairs. Yves Baril of the Canadian Bank Note Co. Ltd. engraved the soldiers shown on the stamps; the backgrounds are lithographied.
