The Croatian Armed Forces were formed in 1944 with the uniting of the Croatian Home Guard (Domobrani) and the Ustae militia in the Independent State of Croatia. It was established by the fascist regime of Ante Paveli in the Axis puppet state the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) in Yugoslavia during World War II. The Croatian Armed Forces (Croatian: Hrvatske oruane snage, HOS) was reorganized in November 1944 to combine the units of the Ustae and Domobrani into eighteen divisions, comprising 13 infantry, two mountain, two assault and one replacement Croatian divisions, each with its own organic artillery and other support units. There were also several armoured units, equipped in late 1944 with 20 Pz IIIN and 15 Pz IVF and H medium tanks. From early 1945, the Croatian divisions were allocated to various German corps and by March 1945 were holding the Southern Front.
Securing the rear areas were some 32,000 men of the Croatian Gendarmerie (Hrvatsko Orunitvo), organised into 5 Police Volunteer Regiments plus 15 independent battalions, equipped with standard light infantry weapons, including mortars. This stamps are a perfect vintage gummed facsimile and as such must be considered.
