This is a first day cover issued by the Post Office of Japan in 1991.

The first day cover commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the security pact signed by the government of Japan and the collaborationist government of Vichy France.

French collaboration with the Nazis is a matter of enormous embarrassment for France.

I wonder whether the French government made any public or private comment when they learned of this Japanese determination to rake over some humiliating French embers.
