The first government to issue stamps honoring Scouting occurred in 1918 at the close of World War I.  The Czech Sea Scouts provided mail service from November 7 to 25 while their new government was being organized in Prague.  The wording on the stamp reads Czech Scout Post, In the Service of the National Government.
