The omnibus military uniforms series of the Portugues colonies is one of my favorites.









Not part of the series, but more uniforms..

One of the great unsolved Cinderella mysteries :

A uniform sheetlet, with one uniform blacked out.
Why?
What country may it have offended?

Dictators in uniform or not, would make for another very interesting topic.

This omnibus issue features distinguished Portuguese naval officers (in uniform) and ships (and one naval aviation plane) so it can go in two topical categories..

I read on another forum that the blacked out country is Argentina. Why? I have no clue.. Maybe some research on the date of issue and what was happening in Argentina at the time? A rainy day/sick day research project?
