I do hope that you don't mind me "picking your brains", so to speak, but I should be very much obliged if you would pass on the attached image to any of the members of your Network who might know something about the label shown


To explain; I collect Political / Propaganda / Commemorative labels from both the World Wars, and I like to write them up in as much detail as I can, such as which organisation produced them, and when--in this instance I assume late 1945 / early 1946, but I would like to know exactly when.


I first tried the Imperial War Museum, and then a number of Northern Ireland Philatelic Societies/Clubs, but none have been able to assist, so, given the postmark, perhaps it is a local production, hence my query to you.


Hopefully, your Network can assist, and I look forward to hearing from you in due course, meantime, I thank you in advance for looking into the matter for me.
