About Stamp
Canada Post Corporation's on-going tribute to heroic achievements and sacrifices of Canadians during World War II continues with a set of four stamps marking 1941, the first year of "Total War". The stamps will be issued on November 8, to complement Remembrance Day ceremonies on the 11th. Many veterans of the Great War sought to re-enlist, but were ineligible for various reasons. Thus was formed the Veteran's Guard of Canada with more than 10,000 men providing vital services for home and country. In Cadet Corps across Canada young men received training that was to benefit both them and their country for the rest of their lives. The Army Cadet movement began in 1862 and was augmented by Sea cadets in 1902 and finally Air cadets in 1941.
