That's a nice photo. I can't identify them by their insignia unfortunately but hopefully someone can.

they are from the Schneidemühl district, the entire district was ceded to Poland after the war, leaders name is Johannes Kindt, he was drafted in 43, ended up a POW guard in 45, worked his west with the prisoners hoping to avoid the red army, captured by the Americans, turned over to red army, but let go after severe illness deemed unfit to work by the reds, made his way back & ended up near Hamburg with wife & children.

The Deutsche Späherbund existed from 1919 till 1932. It had less then 1000 members.
It was closer to international Scouting than many other German Scout organisations.
I enclose two pictures of Uniform and Badge.

thanks for the clear shot of the badge, looks the same as in the 1932 photo, the star buttons wonder what they represent? Best Regards

The stars are "Jahressterne" indicating how many years of service someone has been done. Some stars might have small numbers in the middle, but you can not tell more with most of the photos. The attached copy is from a German post-war scout group. These stars are still used with many scout organisations all arround the world.
