It does indeed look like that stamp is wrong, Gussyboy1. I was looking at the ICRC website and they say they were founded on Oct. 29, 1863.

Although it looks like there were a couple of key events in 1864 as well. Aug. 22, 1864 saw the adoption of the first Geneva Convention (for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded in Armies in the Field).

And then, the first conflict to break out after the creation of the Red Cross was also in 1864. From the ICRC website:
quote:
On 1 February 1864, the Austrian and Prussian armies invaded Denmark.

On 13 March 1864, the International Committee decided to send two delegates to the scene of the fighting: Dr Appia to the Austro-Prussian armies, and Captain Van de Velde (the Netherlands delegate to the 1863 Geneva Conference) to Denmark.

The delegates' instructions were:
  • to assist the wounded;

  • to study, on the spot, how the recommendations of the 1863 Geneva Conference were being or could be implemented.
The delegates were sent to both sides of the front to ensure impartiality; they carried letters of introduction from the International Committee and the Swiss government and each wore a white armband with a red cross.


Here is a Red Cross stamp from Yugoslavia, 1966. I haven't a clue as to what the Scott # or value is. I apologize that the scan isn't up to my usual standard (who you calling a perfectionist? ).

That's an interesting cover, Bob. I wonder if anything got confiscated from it.

Here's a nursing stamp I have, although it's not Red Cross. It was issued in 1961 and the Scott # is 1190.

Let's not forget the Red Crescent, the Red Cross equivalent to the Non Christian world.

That's a really neat stamp, Steve. Kind of a meta-stamp as it were.

Since we all know how good at multi-tasking nurses have to be, this stamp is doing double duty here and in the Nurses thread.
