Nice, but the rank on the jacket is Generale di Divisione... how you said he was a Division commander.
Ciao

Hallo Ron

An interesting composite uniform. General Ferone, who was a member of the Ministry of War in Rome from March 1943, played a role, albeit secondary, in the arrest of Mussolini and therefore his uniform is a major historical find :

(see pages 83, 84, 85, 212, 217 and 222)

The ribbons have been probably modified postwar. The crown devices have been replaced by stars on the order ribbons.
