'But', I hear many of you muttering, 'surely the 13th World Scout Jamboree is too important to the massed population of Manama for them to be content with only one set?' Of course you are right. Another set is required. In two stamp sizes: large and larger.
....that these miniature sheets are such marvelous things that every true stamp collector would love a separate, identically designed miniature sheet featuring each of the twenty different designs in the 'World Scouts' set.
There truly are 20 of these! I have managed to collect 10 of them. That is 9 more than you could possibly want to see. So I will save your bandwidth, leave it at that and hand the thread back to people with serious scout stamps.
Greetings Mr. rayb . Yikes, that feller in the bottom left UNICEF stamp has a bead on the red lady and baby. Not a pleasant image at all.
Don't worry, Mr Lee. It looks as if Bambi's mum is rushing in just in time to rescue them! Oh dear ....
Greetings Mr. rayb . Well, we all know what happened to Bambi's mum, don't we? . I'm waiting for Disney to make a sequel -- BAMBI II -- "Young Buck Seeks Revenge Against the Man Who Murdered His Mother!" . Respectfully,
On March 3, 1986, the Caribbean island nation of St. Lucia issued two souvenir sheets (Scott #823 and 824), honoring Scouting and the Girl Guides.
Each featured a se-tenant pair of continuous design.
The $4.00 Scouting anniversary sheet pictured a cookout and the Scout sign; the $6.00 Girl Guides 75th anniversary sheet pictured a wicker basket, weavings, and Lady Olave Baden-Power, the organization’s founder.
Located in the West Indies as one of the Windward group of islands, St. Lucia has been issuing stamps since 1860. A former British colony, St. Lucia became an associated state in 1967, and gained its independence in 1979.
Greetings Mr. agung . It should be noted that these three sharp looking fellows are giving the Boy Scout salute while standing in front of the Malaysian and Scout flags. This, along with two other stamps (Scott 115-117) were issued 1 August 1974. This one (116) is perforated 13x13-1/2 while the ten-sen and 50-sen are perforated 13-1/2x13. They were issued to commemorate the Malaysian Boy Scout Jamboree. . For some of us that are unfamiliar with the Malaysian dollar and cents, can you explain to us why the "cent" is referred as "sen" and "dollar" is called "ringgit"? . Respectfully,

The official /national language of Malaysia is malay but English is widely spoken here too. Ringgit is a malay word and sen ( according to malay spelling).
The Malaysian ringgit (plural: ringgit; currency code MYR; formerly the Malaysian dollar) is the currency of Malaysia. It is divided into 100 sen (cents). Rm1.00 = 100 sen in denomination of 10sen, 20sen & 50sen. The ringgit is issued by the Bank Negara Malaysia. The Malay names ringgit and sen were officially adopted as the sole official names in August 1975.On June 12, 1967, the Malaysian dollar, issued by the new central bank, Bank Negara Malaysia, replaced the Malaya and British Borneo dollar. The use of the dollar sign "$" (or "M$") was not replaced by "RM" (Ringgit Malaysia) until around 1997, though internationally "MYR" (MY being the country code for Malaysia) is more widely used. Its exchange rate to the GBP is £1 for 4.83908 MYR 100MYR = USD 30.08
