Portugal: Lisbon with Special Postcrossing Postmark

On Friday I got a great postcards from Portugal.

It shows an aerial view of Lisbon. Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal. It is also one of the oldest cities in the World and continental Europe's westernmost capital city. Last week Lisbon hosted the Eurovision Song Contest.


The card was signed during the Postcrossing Meet-up in Lisbon.
Stamp:
Centenary of the Battle of the Lys (issued 09-04-2018)
with a special Postcrossing postmark
The Battle of the Lys, which is known as Vierte Flandernschlacht (Fourth Battle of Flanders) in German, was a part of the 1918 German offensive in Flanders. It was fought between the 7th and 29th April. In the battle the German Empire tried to capture Ypres, but that failed and the battle ended with an Entente victory. 



Thank You very much Paula!
