50th Anniv of Operation Overland D Day Signed 4 all involved in D Day action.

6 June 1994 Douglas First Day Issue Postmark. 50th Anniv of Operation Overland D Day with full set of 8 Isle of Man D Day Stamps 

Personally Signed by General Mogg,  M S Salter, Rear Admiral F B P Brayne - Nicholls ,Vice Admiral Sir Peter Berger

General Sir John Mogg, who has died aged 88 in November  2001 , was in his time, probably the British army's most popular general, and finished his career in one of Nato's most influential posts. There he paid more attention to cricket than to his studies, with the result that, instead of taking the entrance exam for Sandhurst, he chose the alternative route of a Y-cadetship in the Coldstream Guards. After three years in the ranks, he was selected for Sandhurst, where he gained the sword of honour in 1936, being commissioned in January 1937 into the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (the 43rd and 52nd).

Mogg did not see active service in the second world war until, in August 1944, he was chosen to command the 9th battalion of the Durham Light Infantry, which with its armoured personnel carriers, formed part of the 22nd armoured brigade of the 7th division. In operations from Normandy to Hamburg, he was twice mentioned in dispatches and twice awarded the distinguished service order.

By then a lieutenant colonel, Mogg attended the first postwar course at the Camberley staff college, from which he was posted as general staff officer grade one (virtual chief of staff) to the 7th armoured division in Germany. He returned to Camberley as a member of the directing staff, before taking command of the 10th battalion of the Parachute Regiment in the Territorial army in 1950, where, in spite of his weight, he became a keen parachutist. That was followed by two years as chief instructor of the school of infantry, and two on the staff of the Imperial Defence College in London. Also enclosed a compliments slip signed by the general
