1948 Boy Scouts Silver Jubilee

In 1923, the Philippine Council Boy Scouts of America was formed through the efforts of the Rotary Club of Manila. The Boy Scouts of the Philippines was established by the Commonwealth government in 1936 and given the following mission:
to promote through organization and cooperation with other agencies, the ability of boys to do things for themselves and others, to train them in Scout craft, and to teach them patriotism, courage, self-reliance, and kindred virtues, using the methods which are in common use by Boy Scouts.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Boy Scouts, a set of two stamps, perforated and imperforate were issued on October 31, 1948.
