Cover from the Netherlands no. 3
A nice green cover received last week from Zwolle, Netherlands (postmark 23/4/10), with two stamps from 1994. The drawn stamp (80 + surcharge 40ct) is part of a series of three child welfare stamps and shows a picture of a family picking cherries (issued on 9 November 1994), the other stamp commemorated the 50th anniversary of Operation Market Garden, the largest airborne and glider operation of World War II, and was issued on 15 August 1994.
