War Relicts of Papua New Guinea on stamps

Papua New Guinea has released a new stamp issue dedicated to the history of fierce fighting between the Japanese and Allied forces during World War II. Today many war relics remain scattered throughout the provinces of New Britain, Oro, East Sepik, Sandaun and Morobe.

Those who died fighting are buried in the Port Moresby (Bomana) War Cemetery.

Thousands of young Australian and Papua New Guinean soldiers are buried in this carefully tended World War II cemetery, a heart-wrenching reminder of the horrific campaigns in the region.
