StampNews.com is glad to inform that Canadian Post has issued a special stamp depicting the image of a historical photo "Wait for Me Daddy". The stamp was released on the 4th of October.
This photo, taken October 1, 1940 in New Westminster, BC, captures a column of soldiers marching off to the Second World War. The little boy breaks away from his mother's hand to run to his father just as the shutter clicks.
Wait for Me Daddy is one of the most famous Canadian photos from the Second World War, symbolizing the sacrifices families made for the war effort. This stamp issue coincides with the unveiling of a statue in New Westminster on October 4, 2014, to honor the photo.
