Several firms here have issued orders forbidding the use on their mails of the “swastika stamp,” which went on sale today. This stamp, one of the Battle of Britain Commemorative set, bears a swastika on a Luftwaffe plane being downed by an R.A.F. bomber. A non-Jew, Rev. Arthur Jackson, today called on his congregation to boycott the stamp. The swastika was retained in the stamp by the Post Office Department, despite a storm of protests.
