Uniform Identification

Postby clarajo2001 » Thu Jan 27, 2011 9:00 pm

Hello Everyone

Can anyone help me identify this military uniform.

The man in the picture is my granddad who was held as an Italian POW in Halifax during the 2nd World War. Unfortunately he was sent back to Italy at the end of the war & my mum never met him & therefore has no other details about him, including hsi name.

If someone could help me identify which regiment the uniform belongs to, it would help me in trying to trace his details.

Many Thanks

A bit away from my usual identifying field but I think that he is a corporal-major in the Infantry going by the insignia that is on show. Unfortunately there is nothing to say just which regiment he would have been in as most of the information would have been on the cap badge.
