Italian M1916 Grigio-Verde Helmet with Cloth Cover with Machine-Gun Section Patch



Italian Officer's Private Purchase M1916 Grigio-Verde Aluminum Parade Helmet



Other Italian Displays ~ Left to Right



Italian Carabinieri Tenente circa 1915-1918

10th Regiment Bersaglieri circa 1915-1916

Italian Infantry Winter Dress circa 1915-1918


Sorry folks if I got a little carried away! The Italian section of the Collection hasn't received quite as much attention as some of the other countries have in the past.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the additional items. Italian WWI items are few and far between in the U.S. and not all that easy to find in Italy, where I have acquired a large percentage of the items pictured above.

Warmest regards,

JPS

Wonderful thank you.I read an article in an obscure gun Magazine some years ago about the Czech Legion and their weapons but apart from that and a time-life book I've seen nothing on them.I did see a display about them in the Army museum in Prague.Again all kudos to you.
