Happy Bastille Day! La Fête Nationale is celebrated in France on the 14th of July each year. Here is an image of a stamp depicting the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison, which marked the beginning of the French Revolution, designed and engraved by Albert Decaris, and issued by France on July 10, 1971, Scott No. 1307, Y&T No. 1680.

Portugal 1926, Battle of Aljubarrota between Portugal and Castille in 1385, 627 years ago. The amount of years passing always amazes me for some reason.

James, Perhaps add Battles and War into the thread title?

Certainly a thought Puzzler. But battles and war weren't the specific intent of the thread. I guess it turns out battles and war are the only sanctioned form of violence.

One of the most significant battle in Russian history - the Battle of Kulikov field.



Occurred in 1380 in the upper reaches of the Don between the Moscow Prince Dmitry



and temniks Golden Horde Mamai. It was the first major Russian victory over the Tatar-Mongols. Prince got the blessing of a famous saint Sergius of Radonezh



and received from him two experienced soldiers - Peresvet and Oslabya.



Before the battle of the law at that time held the top two warriors battle: Russian nobleman Peresvet and Tatar hero Chelubey. The soldiers at once pierced each other with spears, Chelubey fell dead on the spot, but Peresvet returned to the ranks of the Russian army, and it was a good sign.

DAWSON'S FIELD HIJACKINGS.

In September 1970, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine [PFLP] simultaneously hijacked 4 aircraft. The hijackers on an El Al flight were overpowered but the other 3 aircraft were forced to land in the Jordanian Desert where most of the prisoners were released and planes blown up.
Depicted on the propaganda label [below] is a scene from the bombing of the aircraft and jubilant militants.
I have scant information about the label regarding designer, printer etc but it did come with a story that the label was printed BEFORE the hijackings took place and shows Leila Khalid [Now a Politician] and Nicaraguan terrorist Patrick Arguello celebrating the successful operation. However, both were on the El Al flight, the former being captured [later released in a prisoner swap] and the latter killed on the plane.
I have no information about when or where the label was used.

A very graphic and vivid set issued by the Soviet Union in 1934 to mark the 20th anniversary of the onset of World War I. The stamps depict the horrors inflicted on both combatants and non-combatants, with the 35k stamp showing the victory of "opposing" soldiers' fraternization over their war-mongering superiors:

Here's another one.




Oh, I thought this was "Violins" not "Violence". Sorry.

Or, several young daughters just learning how they work. I literally had to go down to the basement several times to escape the noise, otherwise there would have been some Violence ;-)

Years later, really enjoyed the music, though.
