About Stamp

Canada Post Corporation's on-going tribute to heroic achievements and sacrifices of Canadians during the Second World War continues with a set of four stamps marking 1942 as the "darkest days" of the war. Canadian was correspondents endured life-threatening conditions and strict government censorship to send news of the war home to Canadians. Newsprint journalist like Charles Lynch and Ralph Allen filed stories of vivid accounts of the despair of loss and the thrill of victory. The C.B.C.'s (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Matthew Halton brought the war into Canadian living rooms with his live radio reports directly from the battlefield. Reporter Ross Munro distinguished himself by aiding in transporting the wounded at Dieppe to rescue crafts, and then being the first journalist to file a story on the tragic event. He was also the first correspondent to report on the Allied landing in Sicily, finishing his story with a waterproof typewriter while Italians snipers peppered the area with fire.
