Oh, dear, some largely unpleasant memories of evenings at Cubs are surfacing. The grim, Scots Presbyterian Akela (or Dracula, as we knew her), the uniform, the community singing, the knocking on doors of defenceless old dears for "Bob-a-Job" week.

Believe me, THAT is something you never forget.

This 1991, 2500 zloty stamp of Poland is from a set of 4 commemorating the 80th anniversary of scouting in that country. The beginnings of scouting were difficult because in 1910, Poland was still partitioned territories belonging to Austria, Germany, and Russia.

From Wikipedia, "the Polish scout movement was started in 1910 in Lwow...The rapid development and popularity of Boy Scouts continued up to 1914, but was interrupted by the outbreak of WWI."
