Norway

At least these SA scout camps have had special Salvation Army postmarks and covers (in Norwegian: FrelsesArmeen = FA). The SA Boy Scouts began in 1923 and the SA girl guides followed two years later, in 1925. The two groups became one corps in 1983 and also joined with the Norwegian Scout Association.
