Sunday Stamps – SS Goucher Victory

A few weeks ago I was sent this lovely First Day Cover for the Goucher Victory Ship. From limited research it would appear that these ships, were named after Colleges in the US and were used in the main for returning American troops back to the United States at the end of the Second World War.

    I love that they it looks as though they have combined a modern and old stamp on the cover. Forms a nice contrast in styles.

    I'd heard of Liberty ships but this is the first ship I've seen named after US colleges. Fine cover.
