    Sad,yes. Tuff times makes for tuff choices. Not his fault,but 13 or 30, they can kill just as dead.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Very sad picture and even sadder that there are still regimes around the world using children as combatants even today.

    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.

    Now, you 'are observant' Ade. Pretty good. We look at the face and you pick up on the uniform.
