CHARLES de GAULLE
He signs a Nicaraguan stamp commemorating the Roosevelt-Churchill conference in Casablanca (1943), a meeting to which he was not invited even though it was held on French territory. Framed in the Gallery of History style with an unsigned photo of De Gaulle in uniform, to an overall size of 21x16.
Stamp signed: "C. de Gaulle", 1½x1, mounted on a 3¼x2 card. Sixteen-centavos stamp issued by Nicaragua to commemorate the 1943 Roosevelt-Churchill conference held at Casablanca, French Morocco, North Africa. The meeting at Casablanca caused friction between Churchill, Roosevelt and the Free French. Charles de Gaulle, the accepted leader of the Free French, knew nothing of the meeting in Casablanca before it happened despite the fact that it was being held on French territory. He also objected to receiving an invitation to the meeting. As it was being held in part of France, he felt that he had an automatic right to be there. De Gaulle was not briefed about the planning for the meeting because it would have increased the security risk if more and more people knew about the meeting. This Nicaraguan stamp pictures Roosevelt and Churchill. Fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style: 21¼x15¾,
