WWI military papers

Postby Debid76 » 11 Jul 2008, 06:12

I would love (some more) help!!

I have 2 military documents of my great-grandfather's from WWI.

The first part of this document is obvious...
Royal Italian Army, 92nd reginment infantry
Soldier Balzando Francesco of Antonio.....??????

2nd Document I think is some type of insurance policy his mother would receive, I am assuming, if he were to die while fighting.

I 'would' willingly help you with this Debby - BUT - I'm having problems with my PC at the moment. I cannot open any links (like yours), or any images from e.g.Google or even my own photo's and scans.

It is very frustrating. I thought it might be a virus, but the Norton tech team checked everything and it's not that. I fear that in trying to copy/download/export (?) an image I may have inadvertently altered the way images are read and opened.

But I'm sire there are plenty of others here who will be around before long and who will help you out...

Elba,

My computer did the same thing yesterday... but I only had to restart it and it worked fine again. I couldn't open any links or my own pictures, etc either. I'm sorry yours is not such an easy fix and I wish i could tell you why mine did the same thing. Good luck.


Suanj,

Thank you very much for the translation! :D I am putting a book together for my family and now I can finish with my grandfather's side today!

I am confused by "to number 3235." Do you have any idea what it might mean??

Again, thank you. Your help honestly means a lot to me.

Thanks, again. That is what I was thinking, but did not know for sure.
