1941 Centenary Stamps

The centenary stamps were designed locally and intended for release in October 1940. But due to delays, the stamps were finally issued in February 1941. The four cent stamp shows a liner and junk in the harbour. Given the significant events of 1941, some say the liner depicted was the "Empress of Japan". Not able to verify this claim.
