During the great siege (1825-1826), Constantine (Skoufas at the springs) was included in the children-warriors of Messolonghi who were so praised. Entering adolescence, he took part in the Struggle as a “golfer”. The group of “jugglers” consisted of 15- and 16-year-olds, who did not wear the heavy armor of the Fighters nor heavy clothing with a cloak (eg kappa) but only the “waistcoat” over the shirt to be agile. Their mission was difficult: with their youthful agility and agility, bold and fearless, secretly crossing the hostile Turkish and Egyptian camps, they were able to convey messages and correspondence to the outskirts of the Mesopotamian camp and the Karaipanakian camp.
