I noticed a topic previously posted in 2018 relating to military uniforms, however, you don't have to be in the military to wear a uniform.

So I have made a slight modification with this topic as to wearing a uniform.

To start things off, I thought this would be appropriate, especially in times like this when we have mass epidemics.

Here is a stamp picturing a nurse of the 1930's on this penny health stamp that was first issued on the 29th of October, the 1930 health stamp sold just over 200,000 copies in total.

There are obviously many more to be found

I guess all sports uniforms would also qualify.

Of course here in Canada it would be hockey.

One of my all time favourite hockey players, Tim Horton, who
played when the Leafs still won Stanley Cups.

That's a nice piece of philatelic literature you have there rod.

It's nice to see some "in-depth" documentation on some of the exhibits.

With the latter there is always something to learn. WM

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Out of the many police forces in the world none is more recognisable than the Royal mounted police of Canada in their red tunics and fur wedge cap, "envelope busby", or colloquially "The Astrakhan" uniform hat.





This next site compliments their existence over the years.
