Russian Scout Exile Issues
Keith Larson

The Russian Scouts adopted the fleur-de-lis for their badge soon after their beginning in 1909.  However, the St.George addition to the badge was not authorized until 1928, eight years after the Russian Scouts were exiled to other lands by the Soviet government.

After emigration from Europe following World War II, Russian Boy Scouts issued stamps in New York beginning in 1952 only on Easter and Christmas Holy days. Russian Scouts are active in the United States, Australia, Argentina, France, and Germany.

In honor of LXXXX birthday of Colonel Oleg I. Pantuhoff, founder in 1909 of the Russian Boy and Girl Scouts.  Since 1920 Russian Scouts had units in 26 countries - but not in Russia!  Bolshevik government of the Soviet Union persecutes those who adhere to Scouting ideals.  One council H.Q. of the Boy Scouts of America has a bronze plaque on its walls with the following inscription: "In bright memory of fellow Boy Scouts of Russia, who died in the wave of red terror, true to their oath, for God, for Country, and for its one-day inevitable freedom."

Perforated, brown ink on white paper.
