    I'm thinking the crossed axes with grenade (the flame is broken off/ missing) is Bersaglieri. The '21' would be XXI corps?
    My grandfather was in No Africa in 1944; then England, France (Normandy / D-Day), Belgium (The Bulge), Germany (Berlin July 1 1945 - Nov 9th 1945 when he then left to come home [Home being the USA]).

    Does anyone know if this is Bersaglieri for certain? And would the crossed axes be Engineer or ____?
    Thanks

    Nice group! Any chance you would want to sell the Luftwaffe transport clasp?

    Thanks. I'll post up some more when I have a chance.
    Nothing is for sale. Being my grandfather's, who died recently, they have sentimental value- and they also tell part of my family history- so they're all 'Keepers'.

    I totally understand !!!! If you do ever decide to part with the clasp, all i ask is that you keep me in mind!

    No Africa -Algeria & Egypt- should be 1943, not '44. My error typing previously.

    I will; but I think you'll have to ask my future grandchildren for it someday.

    I'm going to post some more photos. I'll try to keep the items grouped.

    First - some photos so a 'face' can be put to everything.
    BTW Pop (my grandfather) was from PA too.
