Introduction and request (ww2 soldier)

Postby hjdanzi » 14 Dec 2013, 19:19

Hello everyone, my name is Hernán Danzi and Im from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Im glad that I found this place but its my first time on it, so please I beg you guys be gentle with me since im not familiar with the site. Thanks for providing this beautiful tool to learn and search.

So,

I really want to find information about an Italian ww2 soldier who fought 5 years on it and survived. Now I know that he survived the war and died very old in Argentina, but I cant find information about his military records like, in what battalion he fought, grade, medals, or anything related.

His name was Antonino Figuccio, he was born in Trapani the 22nd of March 1920. He came to Argentina the November 16th 1947 from Genova in a ship called SANTA FE. That's everything I know.

If someone can help me find information I will deeply appreciate it. Btw, is there any list of Italian soldiers that fought in ww2? Thanks in advance,

Hernán
