Description

In 1943 the Post Office Department issued new denominations of postage stamps to meet the amended rates of postage effective April 1, 1943. The colour of the airmail special delivery service stamp remained the same; the denomination increased one cent as was the case with the 2-cent, 3-cent and 13-cent regular issue postage stamps and the 6-cent airmail stamp. A Trans-Canada airplane in flight with an aerial view of what is believed to be Drummondville, Quebec. This stamp is an innovation combining airmail and special delivery service charges in one stamp. The design was chosen to emphasize the time saved in transporting by air, personnel and materials necessary for the speedy prosecution of the war effort.
