    The Deutsche Freischar – Bund der Wandervögel und Pfadfinder (DF) is a German youth organization. Originating from the merger of several small Wandervogel and Scouting groups, it was one of the largest and most important associations of the Bündische Jugend of the Weimar Republic besides the Deutscher Pfadfinderbund and Reichsschaft Deutscher Pfadfinder. Throughout the late 1920s and early 1930s several smaller scouting groups joined the Deutsche Freischar. During the association of Freischar and Großdeutscher Jugendbund Eberhard Koebel, known under his totem name Tusk, was excluded from the association, some districts followed him and formed their own association, the Deutsche Jungenschaft vom 1.11.1929 (dj. 1.11); he became its leader. The Freischar still exists with some hundred members. The Freischar is a member of the Ring junger Bünde (RjB).
