This is what I understand from the record, but one of the native Italian speakers on the forum should feel free to make any necessary corrections-

In Dec of 1916, the town of Cammarata received an authentic copy of the death record of soldier Salvatore La Greca from the Minister of War. The death had occurred in a camp hospital no. 104 in Oct of 1916 on either the 19th or 20th of that month. I see the word venti for 20, but also see the word ieri, so I think it was the 19th. His age at death was 25. He was a soldier in the 224 Reggimento Fanteria, classe 1892, Military District of Girgenti (Agrigento). He was a native of Cammarata, and the son of Francesco and Francesca La Greca. The cause of death is given in the record. I am not 100% on this-what I believe it says is that his injuries resulted from the war, and that he suffered from a deterioration or impairment of his organs, and blood deficiency in his body which resulted from hemorrhaging.

Thanks, Livio. I missed the word sepolta last night, and saw the word you give as the town of death name, but couldn't decipher it last night.
