Wraysbury
Berkshire, England

Operated by 1st Wraysbury Scouts & Wraysbury Guides. Serving Hythe End, Wraysbury & Horton. All stamps were printed onto peel off label paper, imperforate, undenominated. Carried covers may be cancelled by a single-line datestamp in blue or not cancelled at all.

The stamp design used each year is based on the results of a competition open to all Unit members. These designs were computerised using a graphics package to generate the master sheet. Stamps from 1987 to 1993 were based on a single colour and printed using a paper plate method onto label paper. Since 1994 multi-colour stamps were produced with an HP inkjet printer using a Coral Draw Graphics software package. From 2001 the stamp design was scanned into the computer, enhanced and printed off using Avery label software.

The 1st Wraysbury Scout Group is part of the Windsor and Eton district within the Scout County of Royal Berkshire.
