Charles Wesley stamps from the British Virgin Islands

Finally an illustration of the Charles Wesley tercentenary set from BVI. This was issued on 5th January 2008, a little late for the 2007 tercentenary but I suppose better late than never.

"The Methodist Church with the Men in Service"

An interesting WW2 postcard with a US Army Postal Service 34 cancel of May 11 1945. This was sent by the Chaplain of 133rd Infantry Regiment, 34th Division, part of the allied forces in Italy.
The card was issued by the US Methodist Commission on Chaplains.
