  A history group would be a good idea as i have a badge with G.I.L and a large M above it. Its from a box of bits and pieces from my mums uncle who went down in 1943 on the HMS Penelope of the coast of North Africa it seems the badge would be fastened to a hat probably a fez. On the reverse of the badge is some writing ' commando generale' ' modelo depositato' and  an address in Firenze i think. I have looked into it and it seems it was a party of young fascists set up n 1937 i guess the large M is for mussolilni but there is a date on the badge which predates 1937 it says R.D.L. 7-11-1925. If anybody has any more info regarding this party G.I.L. i would be very grateful. Sadly how my great uncle came by it will always be a mystery.

  I just read a book called  Where The Hell Have You Been - its a great story about a man who was captured in North Africa and sent to a POW camp in Northern Italy and its about his journey south after escaping to rejoin the allies. Its a great story anyway but when you hear of the villages on his journey especially in Abruzzo it gives it a special edge as i and am sure most of you know them. Its by Tom Carver and its about his Father who was Montys stepson. It is beautifully written even if you are not into WW11 history
