Sardinians among PoWs in South Africa?

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

Sardinians among PoWs in South Africa?

Postby Leondup » 01 Oct 2010, 15:23

Good day, folks. Could someone please tell me how I might establish whether there were any Sardinians among the approximately 90 000 Italians who came to South Africa as Prisoners of War in the early 1940s. Even if there weren't any, was there any factor thst might specifically have excluded them? The information is needed to ensure that a modest little work of fiction is authentic in all details. The fictional PoW, for the purposes of the story, needs to be a consript (i e not a volunteer) Sardinian soldier from a well-to-do, even aristocratic, Sardinian family. Many thanks for any assistance in this.
