Understanding Italian Military Records

Postby allie523 » 02 Oct 2011, 01:05


I was wondering if anyone could explain what the different categories within Italian military registration mean?

For example, I just located a record (from 1902) that says... "soldato di leva 3 categoria...in congedo illimitato."

I know this means they were granted unlimited discharge but I don't know what being in the 3rd category means. I've seen somethings about category 3a but nothing about category 3 in general.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
