    Hey jbrain and welcome to the forums!

    How old is he in this photo? It looks to me that it's a boy scout's uniform. But I don't know for sure.

    Hey there,
    He seems to be a American soldier/scout, Hes wearing a American uniform shirt breeches and puttees.

    I have a m12 uniform which would be used by kids/teens like him in a small size.

    Nice photo

    I maybe wrong though

    Hi, Jbrain, and welcome..........!

    He is definitely wearing a Boy Scout uniform and hat.
    There is a 'Fleur de lis' badge on the hat................
