Italian/Sicilian Army records WW2

Post by barruzza » 13 Jun 2006, 05:49

I was wondering if there is a site that I can
get information on my Grandfather.
He fought for the italian army from Sicily in 1933-1943
He was captured by the Germans and spent
two years in a work camp. He is still alive
and I would like to get records of where
it was that he fought and where he spent
the two years in camp.
Thank you

Members Suanj and Riccardo have mentioned addresses of where to request military info before. Perhaps they can help you?

Barruzza,
grandfather of my wife was captured by the Germans and spent two years in a work camp.
I tried to request his military record, but I was not egible to do that, only him and people strictly related to him (this is the answer from military district of Palermo, Sicily)
I also suggest this web site for WW2 Prisoners of war

http://home.arcor.de/kriegsgefangene/index.html

I hope it helps, bye Riccardo

barruzza: because your grandfather is still living, he must request the militar records in Italy (you can help it), in the militar district of italian birthplace... regards, suanj
