Army cadets? in Spain c1909

This photo is of a postcard sent with English writing (over photo) and it is dated August 22, / 09 (for 1909). It seems to depict a group of youngsters in army uniforms. Are they cadets? The writer says it is just the towns children playing at soldiers if so they are well !
Is it a school uniform mimicking the army uniform?

The attached inscription / museum label (at "Etnologic" museum, in Denia) seems unclear - not just because of my poor photo!! (second part of the second image below, which is in Castillian and Valencian Spanish).

It is another small museum (and free to enter like toy museum in Denia) and well worth a visit see
