hi guys i am in need of help ,
i have seen a ww2 or ww1 italian political or military group named or called 'balilla' i have seen certain cuff titles or cockade insignias marked as such.
i would like to get a basic on who they were and what purpose they served in italy, i am unsure if its a post ww1 group or????
also i am really trying to help my friend identify some knife marked as such - 'BALILLA'
what the knives may have been for. if i were t take a stab at it,, say say field knives and utility knives for military?
i know in the field sometimes odd things can help from a penny to a pocket knife.
does anyone have an example as shown in this picture of these said knives ,and can possibly show me a knife similar???
