US Staff Sergent Francis Daggert of the Military Police and a 15 year old Wehrmacht soldier in the city of Kronach, Germany 1945. I’ve read another source that said he was 10 but only told the Americans he was 15. There’s a good amount of info from an Instagram Post

He possibly served as flakhelfer, and was part of a group of 28 young teenage soldiers, some as young as 13, who were captured by troops of the 11th Armored Division near Kulmbach, Bavaria, Germany. The youngsters had been awakened early in the morning of April 8th, 1945 and given their marching orders. They set off for the Czechoslovakian border after being told that approaching Americans would kill them if they were caught. Homesick, hungry and tired, they were picked up a week later on April 15th. After, the boys were taken to the Kronach town hall and their uniforms removed and burned, Major Ernest L Booth, personally delivered the youngsters, dressed in their civilian clothes that they had under their uniforms, to their homes in 6 different towns in the Kronach area.
