New Issue: Commemorative envelope celebrates War Amps centennial

A new commemorative envelope marking the centennial of The War Amps will be issued by Canada Post today.

Founded 100 years ago on the philosophy of amputees helping amputees, The War Amps continues to improve the lives of all, including children.

Since its launch in 1946, the Key Tag Service has returned more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys to their owners. The service also provides employment opportunities for amputees and people with disabilities.

The new envelope celebrates the charitable association with photos from the past and present. A timeline of The War Amps iconic Key Tag Service appears on the back. This commemorative envelope is cancelled in Ottawa, Ont. with a mark that includes The War Amps logo.
