Description

Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany talks to a Serbian boy surrounded by German staff officers (note the military chaplains wearing the crosses in the background). A German regiment "adopted" this boy and provided him with a German uniform. The Russian and Serbian armies had large numbers of boys in their ranks (they usually followed their fathers into military service) and they provided a wide range of services from drummers to powder monkies.
