This week's theme is 'useful' or 'practical', so I figured with a fairly wide interpretation I could post these Egyptian stamps commemorating the Suez Canal (wiki link ). The one above was issued 26 July 1956 to commemorate the Nationalisation of the Suez Canal.
The next cover is an FDC commemorating 10 years of nationalisation.
The stamp below was issued in 1969 to commemorate the centenary of the opening of the Suez Canal.
