The story of the youngest soldier to be killed in the First World War has been debunked over 100 years later by a military historian.
Fourteen-year-old Private John Condon joined the army in 1914 by pretending he was 18.
A year later he was killed in a gas attack at the Second Battle of Ypres and his body wasn't recovered for another 10 years.
His headstone in Poelcapelle British Cemetery in Belgium has an inscription stating: "Private J. Condon, Royal Irish Regiment, 24th May 1915, Age 14."
