    Thanks for service 👏 the reason you can’t post photos is you need to be a paying member 35 bucks a year. Third party hosting is either disabled or frowned on .

    If your not a collector and a casual member and don’t want to spend the dough .
    You can pm me and I’ll give you my email address and I can post the photos for you.

    old grunt here

    What a pleasure finding this discussion! I jumped with the Folgore at Pisa in 1981 & found "the Truth" about El Alamien... few if any Americans know of this facet of the battle. I jumped with the Alpini as well & did a couple winter expeditions with them, have the hat to prove it. After 27x years infantry & a few wars... my old "Class A" uniform has my CIB [the most important in the US Army], but it also has my Italian jump wings [miniature ones the size of US ones] and my "unit affiliation" badge of the paracadutist alpini at Cortinna d'Ampezzo!

    cannot figure out the posting of photos... no http...

    Hi Dennis,
    your're suggestion is right but I think to post here, only to continue this interesting arguments and not disperse information.
    But if the Moderator retain to move this in a new post for more visibility there's no problem for me

    Thanks a lot!
    Ciao
    Denis

    Adra mab 38a

    Hello every one,
    I'm an Italian collector and i'm new in Wermacht Awards, in fact this is my first partecipation in a post.
    Excuse me for the photo, but now I'm in travel, and this one is the only I have with me.

    This is my inert MAB 38A of the ADRA Paratroops in my collection, I have purchase many years ago in this conditions, the particularity of this piece is the Regia Aeronautica ( Italian Royal Air Force ) logo, impressed in the buttstock.
    At this time this is the only one I have seen of this type.
