WW1 Underage soldiers

WW1 Underage soldiers

I'm researching underage soldiers in WW1. This inculdes those that managed to get away and either returned or died while on active serive. It also includes those who tried to enlist but didnt manage to get away.

I'm interested in making conatct with familes or groups who may have details theyre willing to share about underage soldiers they may know about. The intent is to bring these expereinces together and explore the ideas around why these underagers were able, or in some case,s not able to enlist. Through this it is hoped that an answer of sorts as to why they 'lied' can be found.
