I am interested in trying to get copies of the military service records of Brig. Gen. Amedeo Liberati (a possible relative) who commanded the 65th "Grenadiers of Savoy" division in Ethiopia during WWII. He surrendered with his forces to the British in May 1941 and was most likely a POW in Kenya for the rest of the war. On a previous post, I got some help in determining that he survived the war and was awarded the Military Order of Italy in 1948. Also, as of 1950 he was living in Rieti, where he was active in their local Rotary Club.
He was born around 1883 and I think he was born in Rieti. He could have also been born next door in the city of L'Aquila, which is the general area from where my line of Liberatis originate. Anyways, should I try to write to both provinces to see if they have his records? If anyone has done business with those particular provincial archives, is it better to email them or send them a letter? Also, what specifically should I write in my request? Do I need to include a copy of a photo ID as well? Thanks in advance for your help!
Interested in the surnames Liberati and Gulfo. Also interested in Italy during World War II.
Interested in locating information on my father-in-law who was an Italian POW in Africa. He was a telegraph operator and some photos he had were labeled Dessie, Africa dated Aug. & Oct. 1940. I have contacted the Italian Consulate in our area and am waiting patiently for an response. I also checked out the largest camp in South Africa called Zonderwater. It has a great website with names and a photo gallery. Any help would be appreciated. Need to be pointed in the right direction. Thanks.
His name is Mario Mendicino. Born in Cosenza Sept. 3,1915. Where would I send this request? What other info would they need? I do not have his regiment or where he was held as a POW. That is the mystery I need to solve for my husband's family. Thanks.
