Included with the stamp is a sketch of Brock’s military career, as well as a commemorative envelope with the same stamp affixed and postmarked. Inside this envelope is a gold coin with a profile portrait of Brock on one side with the following inscription “Major General Sir Isaac Brock K.C.B. 1769-1812”.
