All the youth organisations attending are Boys' and or Girls' Brigades. FDF and the brigades have a shared history with the founder of FDF visiting the Boys' Brigade in Scotland and basing the start of FDF on that youth work model.
The Brigades have a heavy use of discipline and drill (marching) to attract young people to their youth organisation, and it's extremely popular.
