corporal in ww1

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

corporal in ww1

Post by nrepole »

My relative was made a Corporal of the 160th 'fanteria' regiment 'Brigata Milano' in WW1
and died soon after the start of the 11th Battle of Isonzo. I am just wondering
what his duties would have been as a Corporal in the Italian army during that period?
Would his responsibilities have been much different to a regular soldier?

Kind regards
Nick
