The 1946 health issue, like the 1946 Peace issue which was also designed by James Berry, focused on the returning armed forces after the end of the Second World War and a return to peacetime activities. The soldier is lifting the child over a stile and symbolically into an era of peace and prosperity.

The scenery in the background is generic and does not represent any specific location.
