Looking at a set of what appears to be Cinderella stamps. Can anyone identify these? One set has no date and the other sheet has 1942 on it.

Both have similar designs.

Thank you.

"Soldier stamps" from Switzerland
Geb.Gz.Fus.Bat. stands for "Gebirgs Grenz Füsilier Bataillon" (Mountain Frontier Fusiliers Battalion)

Ah! Now I see. Thank you so much for the reply. I had looked up the flag, which is of Swiss origin. I didn't know about soldier stamps. Very cool. Now I know a little bit more thanks to you.

Every day I realize how much more there is to learn. :)

The arms showed on the soldiers' stamp, are those of the Valais canton, bordering France.
