Boy Scout and Girl Guide Postal Stationery

Coloured line


In co-operation between Norsk Speiderfilatelistisk Gruppe (Spiva-Fil, Norwegian Scout Philatelic Group in Stavanger), Norges KFUM-Speidere (Norwegian YMCA Scouts) and Norway Post, a postal card was produced for the YMCA National Scout Camp "Starum-82". The stamp imprint shows the Sailor's Memorial in Stavern. The illustration to the left includes the paddle steamer "Skibladner". The card reverse is blank.

1,500 postal cards were printed locally in Stavanger, in blue colour. The green stamp imprint was subsequently recess printed by E. Moestue A/S in Oslo. The postal card was put on sale from 31 July 1982 in the Starum camp.

A special postmark was used at this camp, N-114. It repeats the card design with the paddle steamer.

N-G-003 variety

A few postal cards show a variety where the stamp imprint is rotated approximately 4 degrees to the left. The variety is only recorded on mint cards, but used cards could exist.
