The Anti-craft Artillery and Surface-to-Air Missiles Centenary
The celebration of 100 years since the establishment of the Romanian Artillery and Anti-aircraft Missile branch constitutes an important opportunity to highlight its traditions and also an interesting subject for accomplishing an anniversary postage stamp issue.In actions for the defence and liberation of the national territory, anti-aircraft artillerymen found themselves in legendary feats of heroism, performing many missions that were included in the golden chronicle of great victories.
On September 19th, 1916, during the manoeuvre from Flamanda, Romanian anti-aircraft artillerymen shot down an enemy plane on the Romanian bank of the Danube.This first victory became the reason the day of September 19th, 1916, was adopted as the Artillery and Anti-aircraft Missiles Day.
