Scout stamps have been eagerly collected since the advent of the Scouting movement soon after its formation during the Boer War by Gen. Robert Baden Powell at the Siege of Mafeking in April 1900. Indeed a pair of scouts stamps depicting Gen. Baden Powell and Sgt Major Goodyear was issued at the time and became the basis for any collection on this topic.
The Scouting Movement with its aim of bringing out the best in young men (and later women in the Guides) from their own qualities and endeavours, the sense of duty and brotherhood and a respect for their leaders has spread to every nation on earth, with many members of Royal or Ruling Households depicted on stamps. Virtually every country has at some time issued at least one scouts stamp to commemorate a Scouting event or Jamboree. Notable issues include teh 1920 Thailand Scout Fund overprints, Romania 1931 and 1932 Charity sets, South Korea 1957 Min Sheet.
