Updated 31 August 2013: Merdeka Sale! 56 Years of Merdeka and 50 Years of Malaysia!

Merdeka!

This year Malaysians will celebrate the 56th year of independence. Of peculiar interest are the various stamp issues related or in some cases not even remotely related to independence issued by Pos Malaysia. Have a read from an updated article from last year: https://myfdc.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/happy-national-day-selamat-menyambut-hari-kebangsaan/

Meanwhile here are the photos of the private covers issued to commemorate the Independence Day (Merdeka Day) on 31 August 1957. The frames were prepared by Chang Cher An.
