Stamp Booklets related to Boy Scouts and Girl Guides / Girl Scouts
Not only Scout stamps can be found in booklets, but also labels. Here are two varieties of a booklet with World Jamboree labels issued 1947.
France issued in 2000 a booklet with Tintin stamps.
A modest, charming and humorous man, Hergé is regarded as the Father of the European strip cartoon. Although he created many other cartoon characters, it is Tintin that has aroused the imagination of generations of readers.
He took active interest in scouting and traveled to Spain, Austria, Switzerland and Italy for summer camps. His picture stories began to appear in "Le Boy-Scout", later "Le Boy-Scout Belge" in February 1922.
It was in 1926 that he created his first proper series: "Totor: Patrol Leader of the Hannetons". Totor was in many ways the predecessor of Tintin and continued to appear until 1930.
The text on the inside of the booklet cover mentions Totor, the Belgian Boy Scout patrol leader.
