Salvation Army Scout covers
A few countries have issued Salvation Army scout covers. I have now listed those I have collected here, see also the menu. It is mostly Norway and Sweden who have the tradition of making a special PM to the national scout camps. The catalogue numbers refers to ArGe Pfadfinder’s catalogue about European scout covers and postmarks. The below cover is the first registered Norwegian scout PM; issued at the “Concordia” international girls’ guide camp in 1954.
SA 4.41 – US FDC scout cover
An extremely rare US FDC turned just up on Ebay. It was a girl scout cover where the Girl Scouts congratulate the Girl Guards & Sunbems on the 100th Anniversary of the Salvation Army. The Girl Guards emblem is pictured. I have not seen this around before, but it is pictured in the SA FDC catalogue as no SA 4.41.
