    Looks like police to me - with white cuffs for directing traffic.

    His helmet is reminiscent of those worn by Italian Polizia Municipale.

    I may be jumping to conclusions on this but the Italians were in Croatia in 1941 so could he be an Italian policeman ?

    Thanks! Would be great if someone could confirm that he is in fact an Italian police man

    Im no expert but--I do have a few pix of Croatian and Italian Officers (sorry I cant post them as I have no ability) but--none of what I have looks like what the Gent above is wearing. The Croat pix I have show them wearing Combat lids, Berets and Visored caps. The one I have that I think is Italian--shows him wearing an all dark uniform but large visored cap.
