Photographer's Note

... The United Kingdom allows children as young as 15 3/4 to sign up for the Army... Training begins at age 16... Recruits include "low achievers" who have significant educational or social problems...

... "It's one of the great things about the Army, it does take those people and it does an awful lot with them... it gives them an education, it gives them a skill, it gives them a trade, and gives them a huge sense of self-worth."

(Colonel Mike von Bertele)
