One particular little song went: “bellezza mia di questo cuore tua madre ti...

lista di leva translation

Hi everyone
Just hoping to get a translation of a relative's military record.
I know he spent time in a bersaglieri regiment in 1915 however does not seem to be
mentioned here. I am still trying to get his full record but this is all I have at the moment.

Kind regards
Nick

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: 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...
