The description, history, and information of the stamp pictured above was found at the site: AlgomaDistrict.ca.

This is a picture of the 1946 Victory stamp issued by the British government to commemorate Victory in WW2. His Royal Highness King George VI was the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Scotland before the War. Note the Masonic symbols, particularly the depiction of the square & compasses with one point exposed, which is the custom of that particular Grand Jurisdiction. In his victory speech, the King stressed the value of Freemasonry in post War reconstruction, with these words: “The world today does require spiritual and moral regeneration. I have no doubt, after many years as a member of our Order, that Freemasonry can play a most important part of this vital need.”
