Most of the stamps in this issue bore the legend "Trail of the Caribou" with the name of a battle below that, however the 2 Cent, 5 Cent, 8 Cent and 12 Cent issues bore the legend as shown below.The stamps with values from 1 Cent to 36 Cents were issued to commemorate the the Newfoundland Contingent who fought in the First World War. Each issue had the name of a battle in which the contingent fought during the war. This particular example has been hand-cancelled. (See other values of this stamp issue this blog)
