100th Anniversary of the Death of Henry Dunant and Gustave Moynier ...

Swiss Post had issued on Sept 3 a stamp with face value CHF 1.90 to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Henry Dunant and Gustave Moynier, in honour of the life’s work of the two Red Cross founders.

The early history of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Red Cross owes much to two figures: Henry Dunant and Gustave Moynier, who worked tirelessly to protect the lives and preserve the dignity of victims of wars and conflicts.

Many thanks David for this awesome postcard with nice stamp and cancellation ;-) Also, thanks for sending me postcard from this beautiful city of Lausanne ;-))
