Scouting around the World

The display starts with the FIP large gold exhibit “World Scouting” which currently is the highest merited exhibit within the ever popular theme of Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. The exhibit presents the idea, principles and activities of Scouting and its development from Baden-Powell’s Scheme into today’s world wide movement.

It is followed by “Scout Mail in DP Camps”, “Scouting Norway” (since the presenter is Norwegian), “Scouting UK” (since we are here!) and a general section “Scouting around the World”. Focus is on presenting Scout related postal history for the period up to 1957 which marks the golden jubilee of Scouting and the centenary of the birth of Lord Baden-Powell.

Scout Mail in POW and DP Camps
A study of Scout related mail in
Prisoner-of-War Camps and Displaced Persons Camps
in Europe during and after World War II


Traditional / special study, four frames
Exhibited since 2012.
Description:
Soon after the capitulation of Germany in the second world war, special camps were established for the displaced people. Boy Scout Troops were active in many of the DP camps, and several of these were involved with the mail delivery service and Scout stamps were issued. These DP camp stamps are in the category of local or provisional issues rather than official country issues. No country was responsible for their release, nor required their use. Nevertheless, many of the DP camp stamps have seen real postal use and were not just souvenirs.

Best results:
- Vermeil 78p at Frimerki 2015 (national Iceland, 4 frames).
- Vermeil 81p at Frereg 2013 (local, 3 frames).
