Hi everyone. I have since looked into and solved all the history of my mum’s dad (Pop) (Aussie ) side.
Now its time to suss out my Dads dad on the Italian side.
For many years all i have known is that he was a POW in Siberia and the other thing that’s still talked about in his village in Sicily today even after he left there in the 1950's.
Apparently the Germans came and took his Donkey and against all the wished of the village he went off on a journey to get it back. A week later he returned with it after taking it back from the Germans and was the Village hero.
I actually didn’t know he was in the Italian Military until i just had this picture emailed to me of him.
First Question is .... Can anyone here tell me more about the uniform
2nd question.... how’s the best way to look up Italian ww2 solders details and history.
This will be an interesting little project
His Name was Sebastian Russo
