    I am 50% Italian, 25% German, and 25% Russian.

    This compass belonged to my Russian grandfather... I know next to nothing about his military service in the Red Army. Only that he was injured (lost some fingers) and captured. The Germans then employed him as a medical orderly. I also know that he was from Rostov.

    Here are some pictures of my Italian grandpa during his mandatory military service in Italy (post WWII):

    This is my grandpa as a member of the Opera Nazionale Balilla Italian Fascist youth organization sometime between 1926 and 1937:
