Stamp Released to Celebrate 100 years of the Corps of Signals, Indian Army

The Corps of Signals of the Indian Army turns 100 on Feb 15 2011. The celebrations have been on since quite some time now. And since Mhow houses the Military College of Telecommunications Engineering (MCTE) - the alma mater of the Signals it has also been the venue for many of these celebrations.

I am happy that I could come to know about the release of this stamp and first day cover issued to celebrate 100 years of the Corps. I am also happy that I could discover a blog dedicated to the stamps of India. Please click here to see Indian Stamps For You Virtually -  the source of these images.

The atmosphere at the stadium is charged.
