Canada 1942 20c Corvette Stamp

Take a close look at Canada's Scott/Unitrade #260. It shows a Corvette being built in a shipyard. The Corvette were considered to be the warhorse of the Second World War. Canada's Naval Memorial is the Corvette HMCS Sackville, berthed in Halifax, and is probably the last of these ships. This year National Defense issued a Candian Naval Centennial calendar (1910-2010). A great write up on Corvette's is found on the May page. A wonderful calendar to have!
