World War II

This is a stamp, from a set of 2, remembering the Operation Market Garden. I only have this obliterated one.

Operation Market Garden was an unsuccessful World War II military operation fought in the Netherlands from 17 to 25 September 1944, planned and predominantly led by the British Army. Its objective was a series of nine bridges that could have provided an Allied invasion route into Germany. Airborne and land forces succeeded in the liberation of the Dutch cities of Eindhoven and Nijmegen, but at the Battle of Arnhem were defeated in their attempt to secure the last bridge, over the Rhine (wikipedia).

The knapsack parachute was created in Russia in 1912 by a Russian engineer Kotelnikov. The famous pilot Gromov (first from left) for the first time in Russia escaped from an emergency plane in 1927. In 1937, he and his comrades made a non-stop flight from Moscow to San Jasinto (California)

In 1995 for the 50th anniversary of WWII, Canada #1544 shows a group of paratroopers in the sky. (I don't have it, so please if someone can send a scan of this beautiful stamp).

Cosmonautes

This stamp belongs to a set of 8, honoring cosmonauts.

Malcolm Scott Carpenter (May 1, 1925 October 10, 2013), (Commander, USN), was an American naval officer and aviator, test pilot, aeronautical engineer, astronaut, and aquanaut. He was one of the Mercury Seven astronauts selected for NASA's Project Mercury in April 1959. Carpenter was the second American (after John Glenn) to orbit the Earth and the fourth American in space, after Alan Shepard, Gus Grissom, and Glenn. Carpenter was the second north american to orbit the Earth, what he did in the capsule Aurora in may 1962, travelling 5 hours in three orbits around the planet.
