Re: ww1 military record translation

Hi cedrone! I just have a record of his death as noted in the records of his hometown, Rapone (Basilicata).
The death record does not seem to mention where he was buried, unless I missed it????

Re: ciclista???

Hi mjclayton1 ! You are right! I just found out from an aunt that the relative in question did ride in a competitive race on at least one occasion with some success (he crashed out while in 2nd place). It was not the Giro, but a local race...still impressive I think. The young man loved to cycle, an...

Re: ww1 military record translation

Thanks Angela for your help!!! Very appreciated as always. Yes, I had seen his name on the cadutigrandeguerra register previously but thank you anyway. The record gets more personal in some ways with that little note that he had fallen asleep while on duty. Very touching as the family has no photo o...

ciclista???

Hi everyone I just noticed a little strange note on my relative's WW2 record. It seems to list a second profession to his first (contadino)...ciclista. Have I read this right?? This seems unusual as he lived in a little country town in Southern Italy (Rapone, Basilicata) and worked on his family's l...

corporal in ww1

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 dif...

checking if relative was in Italy on military record

Hi everyone Just have a military record of a relative and was confused with a couple of dates. Does it appear that he did military service in Italy in June, 1907?? And did he do the same in (not sure what month) 1911? He had migrated to New York to have a family but I know he visited Italy circa 190...

Re: ww2 death location query

Sorry for the quality of the document as there are quite a few blotches. So mmogno it does look like he was transferred back to a military hospital in Bergamo Italy...is this what you think? Thanks for the photos and thanks Angela for your efforts and we are all good in Sydney.
Best regards
