    I know very little about Italian items, but I am not aware of Italian Officers wearing a Battledress/Ike jacket style blouse in WW2. Hopefully other more knowledgeable members will comment?

    Cheers, Ade.

    It doesn't look like any Italian WWII jackets that I am familiar with. I would pass on it sir.

    Not a W.W.2 Jacket. Maybe slightly post-war. Single red flame is garrison or teratorial troops in W.W.2. Rich A. in Pa.

    I subscribed to help with the italian uniform question. The italian army started to use shorter jackets AFTER WW2, using english-style uniforms. This is not a WW2 uniform, and not an artillery uniform too.
    Italian artillery used golden/yellow trims, not red.
    You can see an italian artillery WW2 uniform here:

    The Collector's Guild

    Notice the trims, and the distinctive "crossed guns" that are still used in the italian artillery badges nowadays.

    I hope it helps, if you have questions about italian uniforms of the last century, feel free to ask.

    The jacket belongs to a Sottotenente Medico (ltn. Medical Doctor).
    Look at trhe red trimming under the little star used only by Commander Officers and till 1980 (about) by Medical Officers.
