Thank you for posting a most interesting photograph, and the startling figures that accompanied it. I knew there were young boys on commando, but I did not know there were so many, and that they were so young.

The only positive thing that might be said about the boy PoW's is that they were probably better off in Pow camps than in the concentration camps back in South Africa.

Regards
Brett
