    Default My nonno's Italian motorcycle/ insignia

    Hello all!

    After my nonno (grandpa) passed away, I found old pictures of what I am assuming are him during his days serving in the Italian military. (For all I know, he could have been a mail man or other type of civil servant that wore a uniform)

    I'm trying to figure out if he served during WW2. I am also trying to gain more information on the branch of the service he was a part of, etc.

    These are the only two pictures I have of him during his military career. Can anyone offer any information? Would anyone know of a database, etc. that I could put my Nonno's name into to find out more info about his service record?

    THANKS!





    Sorry for the poor picture quality. I'll try to get better quality pics soon!

    I would say the photo on the bike is 1950's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    He wears a British 1937 pattern webbing belt and the bike is certainly post war.
