Help needed with Italian uniforms worn during the East African campaign 1940-41

Post by AOI1941 » 20 Nov 2021 16:58

Greetings everyone,

I've recently been researching Italian uniforms worn during the East African campaign of 1940 to 1941. In particular, uniforms of the 'Cacciatori d'Africa' division, and the Carabinieri present in Italian East Africa. Among the questions I have is whether or not all Italian (not askari units or the like) units had neckties, and if units of the 'Cacciatori d'Africa' division would have worn their divisional armshield at the time.

Any pictures or help would be grealy appreciated!

I thought the only unit which wore neckties were the 65th "Grenatieri di Savoia"

Here's the only picture I've found of a member of the 40th "Cacciatori d'Africa".
