2020 VICTORY IN EUROPE - LEO MAJOR Issue
Mark the 75thanniversary of the Victory in Europe (V-E) Day with this Official First Day Cover bearing a PermanentTMdomestic stamp from Canada Post’s Victory in Europe stamp issue. This Official First Day Cover is issued on April 29 and is cancelled in Montreal.
This cover honours Léo Major “The one-eyed ghost”, a Canadian who exemplified bravery on the battlefront.
In April 1945, while scouting the German-occupied Dutch town of Zwolle, Private Leo Major singlehandedly tricked the enemy into thinking they were under a full attack, capturing dozens of prisoners and forcing the Germans to retreat, which earned him the Distinguished Conduct Medal and the lasting gratitude of the people of Zwolle.
