WW1 War Hero great grandfather info

Post by misswordsalad » 14 Nov 2016, 01:16

Hi,

I remember my late nana telling me that her father, Nicolino Muratore (of Petticiato / Civitavecchia) was a war hero in WW1. She told me he rescued 40,000 men in the Alps and received the highest honour. Nobody in my family seem to have any more information than that and I've made it my mission to find out the story! Is there anybody who would know how I go about finding this out please? I'm hoping to turn the story into a musical art project.
Thanks!
Francesca

There are military archives in Rome you can write to for his Foglio matricolare. Give his birthdate and father's name.

Welcome to the forum, Francesca :-)

Did you mean Petacciato?
This town would be in Province of Campobasso (Molise) (unlike Civitavecchia, which is in the Metropolitan city of Rome (Lazio))

Do you know which would be his place of birth? Do you have an approximate year of birth?

T.
