Italian graves.

Recommended Posts

In the photo album of Uffz. Kreth, 3.I.R.16 who served with the 22.Inf. / LL. Division from 11.11.1938 till 10.5.145  (a POW till 8.7.1947) I found this photo.

I have no idea where this photo was taken, Greece, Crete ?

And my Italian is nearly zero so I don't know what it says on the markers.

Both pictures are a bit too blurried to read right what's written on each cross.

However,it cames from an artillery unit.

The first from right has written "ART LOMBAR.. FL... (probalbu Flavio) CADUTO IN COMBATTIMENTO (fallen)".

ART means Artigliere (Artillerist - Kanonier); the second is the grave of a TENENTE (1st Lieutnant - Oberleutnant),  all the others are Artillerist or CAPORALE (Gefreiter).

Each grave has written "CADUTO IN COMBATTIMENTO (fallen)".The date seems to be 11 September 1943 but it's to blurried to read properly the year.

Hi Ste.,

 

Thank you for your information.

 

Sorry to say that the photo isn't such a sharp one.

 

Best regards
