100 years of war: from headline to postage stamp

13/12/2018

You are probably aware of the fact that The Great War ended with the signing of the Armistice already a century ago. To mark the commemoration, Bpost issued a sheetlet with a number of lovely archive images. You will find front pages of two newspapers from the collection News of The Great War shining on it.

Since 2014, Bpost has issued a sheetlet that highlights the First World War every year. The fifth and latest focuses on the ‘liberation’ theme. Aside from a number of black-and-white images from 1918 and prints of historical documents you will also find front pages from ‘De Belgische Standaard’ and ‘La Libre Belgique’ that report the news of the liberation.
