SCOUTING COLLECTION / « ...the real way to get happiness is by giving out happiness to other people. »
This was one of Lord Robert Baden-Powell's beliefs (22 février 1857 - 8 janvier 1941), the man who created the first scouting camp on the 29th of July 1907 on the island Brownsea.
Robert Baden-Powell, a former lieutenant-general in the British army, devoted himself entirely to the scout movement, which in the course of time has spread throughout the world. Through it he wished to teach solidarity, mutual help and respect. Each young person can use the movement to build a personality and develop themselves physically, mentally and spiritually, so they can become an active citizen in their society.
Today the various scouting associations around the world have a total of more than 38 million members and this spread over 217 countries and territories.
Numerous items related to scouting are/were produced (stamps, badges, magazines, books, novels, scarfs, uniforms, postcards, posters, drawings, photos, medals, etc...) and these are collected by people all over the world. Some of these items can be found on the website.
Here are a few examples :
| DID YOU KNOW IT ? ... Promote a fair, show, etc.
