Saipan



US Saipan.: Northern Mariana Islands.

This card was a surprise from a great swapper that always seems to remember to send me a card ..As he travels so much in his work..and the cards come from the most unlikely places..Thank you Arnold once again for a great surprise with this card from Saipan in the Northern Mariana group of Islands in the North Pacific Ocean. This Island was the scene of some of the most ferocious fighting between The USA marines and the forces of Imperial Japan in WWII. The card shows the remnants of a Japanese tank in Marpi, that was destroyed in this conflict. I see also the purple heart (medal ) stamp ...very appropriate for this card.. Thanks again Arnold for this great card..
Posted Saipan : 22 January : Arrived Sydney :04 February: Traveled 13 days.. lovely stamps.
