|Scout and Guide Stamps Club|
The Scout & Guide Stamps Club was founded as the Scout Stamp Collectors Club (SSCC) in 1957 as a result of the increased interest created by the numerous stamp issues commemorating the Baden-Powell Centenary and the Golden Jubilee of Scouting. The first meeting was held on February 20th 1957 at the Headquarters of the International Bureau in London followed by an open meeting at the 9th World Jamboree at Sutton Coldfield.
Club membership consists of individuals from over 20 countries and extends to collectors of Scout and Guide stamps, postal history of Scout & Guide events, special postmarks, slogans and meter cancellations, labels (seals) and postcards.
A Bulletin is published four times a year, giving details of new issues of stamps and cancellations, articles on events of philatelic interest, both past and present. The Bulletin also contains periodic auctions, sales services, members and dealers adverts of sales and wanted material. Each member is entitled to one free small advertisement each year.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in this popular thematic subject and close co-operation is maintained with similar clubs in the U.S.A. and many European countries.
The leading collectors of the world, specialising in Scout and Guide thematics, are members of the SGSC and their expert knowledge and advice is available to fellow members. You are invited to read our Constitution.
