Correct, of course. To you.

Sorry, Robb. I strongly wanted to involve some extra-Mediterranean guys, but alas...
(as you can see, it was really simple!!)

Bruno Mussolini was the first commander of our only long-range Squadriglia (and was soon killed in an air crash - probably this very same plane above).

Thanks.

Name the only Maresciallo d'Italia (that I know of) that climbed all the rank ladder from bottom to top during his carreer.

Correct, he was Giovanni Messe.

Interesting picture. If I'm not mistaken on his right arm he wears 2 ribbons indicative that he was wounded twice (if the ribbon is golden --> wounded in war, if the ribbon is silver --> wounded in service. Can't tell from the picture though).

To you.

Best regards

I have to agree with Downunder Robb, but I will say that I'm learning more and more each time I read a post to this thread. There may only be a few people that post (those that really know the answers!), but I'm sure that there are plenty of us that read those posts to gain their knowledge! :)
