Both Germans and Koreans know about walls of barbed wire separating their populations after a war. This cancellation was issued for the philatelic exhibition in Frankfurt highlighting friendship between the two countries. Note that the Brandenburg Tor is open and the DMZ is not, but there is a peace dove between the two.

The Bulgarian stamp of 1949 shows a hurdle jumper and behind him a soldier easily jumping over a wire entanglement, even while carrying full gear. The message - keep in shape with lots of sports in order to be a good soldier.
