    I recall seeing this photo before. Yes, sadly child soldiers are still with us all around the world.

    I noticed that he is wearing a re-issued former Slovakian army cap. Note the very low front to the turn up.

    Cheers, Ade.
    Damn Ade I am glad you noticed that and identified it. I was wondering what it was also.
    If the kid is still alive he is an old man now.

    You bet.
    I have seen young soldiers before on 2 continents. They are always very vicious. Killing is all they know. Never let their angelic looks fool you. If you do you will be a maggot farm very quickly.
