Kids Who Fought In WW 1
All armies in the Great War (aka World War 1, 1914-1918) used soldiers well under the recruitment age of 18. At the beginning of the war the enthusiasm to join the battle was so great that boys (and even girls) as young as 14 were keen to enlist. Recruitment Officers in all countries must have been blind when eager children clearly underage showed up to join their armies. With insufficient training and experience, these kids were sent to the trenches of Belgium, France, Russia and Turkey, where they fought and died alongside men and women of fighting age.
To think my dad was 16 when he joined the navy and by 1950-1952 he was in Malaya on active service in a war zone. Glad he didn't get offed by them fuzzy wuzzy commie cunts else I would be someone elses bastard drug fucked son!
And eyebrows are raised when we see child soldiers in the east it doesn't make it right but it is a bit hypocritical. No child should be made to take part in someone elses squabble
