Ваня смотрел на него, знал наверное, что это капитан Енакиев, но не верил, не мог верить, что это был он. Нет, это был совсем другой человек -неподвижный, непонятный, страшный, а главное - чужой, как и все, что было в эту минуту в мире вокруг мальчика.
Vanya looked at it and knew that this is probably captain Enakiev, but he did not believe, no he could not believe that this was captain Enakiev. No, this was entirely another person - fixed, incomprehensible, terrible, and most of all - stranger as everything which was in the world around the boy at this minute.

The two from the left look young indeed. In 1941 the military age was dropped down to 18 year and in 1944 17 year old also were drafted into the army. 17 year old could look childish. Seems the boy with bag in the center of picture serves as a postman. He was most likely one of regiment's sons.
