help translating WW2 record

Postby mellowfe » 23 Apr 2016, 21:56

Finally got my grandfathers military record but I'm having trouble translating the Italian script. I know the basic dates, that he was in the military from 1934 to 45, possibly fought in the Ethiopian war before ww2, and was captured in tunis in 43.

The scan I received is not the best, if anybody can help me translate the rest in more detail I would be very grateful.

Thank you
