History

The KFUM-Spejderne i Danmark (KFUM-S) gained an independent title of membership in 1924. In 1961, the World Scout Conference changed the statutes of WOSM requesting only one member per country. Thus, DDS and KFUM-S founded the Fællesrådet for Danmarks Drengespejdere which overtook the WOSM membership on April 23, 1962.[2]
