The above is a hyperlink to British Pathe's online archived footage which is a very short preview of a very young (10 years old and possibly even younger) chest bemedalled uniformed boy. This purports to show a runaway youth eager for war excitement. Does anyone know WHO this boy is and WHAT became of him during the war, if he survived the war and the war's aftermath (i.e. Epidemics, Anarchy, Civil War, Bolshevik Revolutions, Hunger, etc...)?
