    List of Countries issuing Europa Scout stamps along with some pictures.

    We (GB) seem to be issuing ours last!
    To get more kids we need more adults - are we getting the message yet?

    Why July 26th?
    Is it just a coincidence that its the day the UK WSJ Contingent arrive on site?

    If ya read the statement there, it says its to coincide with the day before the 21st World Jamboree....which officially it is (the day before)...its only the UK that arrive on the 26th...

    well o well! your all complaining about paying £6 for a 50p...some of those are over £300 !!!!

    i still want one though...i feel an appeal coming on...if all the escouts members gave me 50p to buy a 50p then i would be able to buy 3

    This might seem a bit odd, but i still dont think I have seen a 50p or a stamp with the scouts stuff on it in circulation yet!

    I've seen some of the stamps, including a rather smart french stamp on a letter that was delivered to us by mistake.

    I remember reading somewhere that the Royal Mint weren't going to put the coins in general circulation until they took a load of old coins out of circulation. Dunno when that'll be tho.

    I got one when I had a name badge made at the WSJ. Was very clever - the badge cost £6.50 (I think), you paid £7 and when you collected yr badge you had a Scout 50p as your change!!

    Well it did occur to me that he might have bought it - but he's only 18 and he's too tightfisted and/or skint to do that.

    Anyway - would I lie to you? I'm a Scout!!!
