World Jamborees - The Years & the Cachets
Keith Larson

Scouts and stamp collectors like to make commemorative decorated envelopes that are canceled and often mailed to remember a special event.  Such cachets post marked on the first day the stamp is issued by the Post Office are called First Day Covers (FDC).  Here are examples of these cachets from every Jamboree.  We also have another page of WJ covers.  Future additions (*).
