In 1909, a small group of girls turned up to Lord Robert Baden-Powell's first rally of Boy Scouts at the Crystal Palace. In an age where skirts were ankle length and young ladies never ran, these girls insisted they wanted to be Scouts too. As a response, in 1910, Baden-Powell set up the Girl Guides and asked his sister to look after the new organisation.

Royal Mail mark 100 years of the Girl Guides with a miniature sheet released on 2nd February 2010. To compliment it, we offer a superb tribute cover. The envelope shows the Girl Guides flag flying in the background. At the bottom of the cover is a list of all the badges the Girl Guides can work towards.

Centenary of the Girl Guides

The pioneers who turned up at the 1909 Crystal Palace rally called themselves Girl Scouts, but when he founded the girl's movement, Baden-Powell decided that the name should change. This was partly because he thought it would antagonise the boys for whom Scouting had been developed and alienate parents, who would not welcome such a tomboyish image for their daughters. But mostly he wanted to create a separate identity for the girls so that they could work for self development independently, not in imitation of their brothers.
