Description

During the early days of the Second World War Canadian Postal authorities believed that the stamps in use since 1938 should be replaced with a new issue featuring Canada's substantial contribution to war work. A new general issue to last for the duration of the hostilities was designed. Subjects depicting Canada's munitions, war supplies, shipbuilding, agriculture, her importance as a great air-training centre, and as a source of food were chosen for the pictorial stamps.

"Tribal Class" destroyer of the Royal Canadian Navy was a ship from Canadian Shipyards. The destroyers bore names of Indian tribes as: H.M.C.S. Iroquois. Destroyers of the Tribal class had the important duties of convoying men and supplies to the different war fronts and the protection of Canada's coastline.
