This was quite common during the Warsaw Uprising. Children as young as 5 years old where part of the underground army, mostly serving with the ‘Grey Ranks’, the ‘youth organization’ within the Polish underground army :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gray_Ranks The delivered post mail and used the sewers for communication and transportation. Children where treated the same as adults by the Nazi’s and thus many of them died during the uprising. There were so many of them and they where so vital that they are verry well known and have their own statue in the centre of Warsaw: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3e/Pomnik_ma%C5%82ego_powsta%C5%84ca_w_Warszawie.jpg
