World War One Stamps
Martha Pill in Year 1, is proud to unveil her family’s first-class connection with World War One.
To commemorate the signing of the Armistice treaty on 11th November 1918, Jersey Post collated historical photographs of local people who had significantly contributed to the war effort, and produced a selection of commemorative stamps entitled Armistice and Remembrance.
Martha’s Great Grandfather, Corporal Robert Leonard Norman, a Despatch Rider in the Royal Engineers Signals Service, and Great, Great Aunt, Madeleine Norman, who served as a nurse, were both featured in the commemorative stamp set.
Martha was very excited to share the stamps with her classmates, giving them a chance to understand her family’s connection with Jersey in the wartime.
