Alaska Highway Commemorative Envelopes, 1943

    These 3 envelopes were mailed in October and November 1943 by Colonel Joseph P. Glandon, from APO 724, which was the headquarters of the Northwest Service Command on the Alaska Highway at Dawson Creek, BC. The middle envelope was also backstamped on December 1, 1943, by the U.S. Army Postal Service, and on December 2 at APO 938, which was at Ladd Field in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    The original envelopes were in the ExploreNorth collection, but were sold in December 2016 and are now on display in The Cut Off Restaurant on the Alaska Highway just south of Whitehorse.
