        I agree.
        signor by A. Pomi: the draftsman Armando Pomi. Postcards published by the Command of Northern Africa even if different illustrators have the same style. As soon as I have a moment, you will be given an almost similar one, edit by the dame Commander but by of another illustrator.

        Ciao Oriano

                interesting and pertinent integration (also behind, PM 51 comes from Tunisia at the end of 1942 beginning of 1943) ...

                this Franchigia of Boccasile is part of a widespread couple printed and distributed by the OND (National Association of Workers) of the National Fascist Party (PNF), in all Italian fronts.

                The theme is the old Fascist squads along with the "connected" German Brownshirts ... and the pennant of the first fascist action squads "the Desperate" in Florence which takes its origin from the bodyguard of Dannunzio and which will follow many other squads, group and fascist unit with the same name

                  I take the suggestion and place some of the second postacard from the Russian front ....

                  the first two sent in July 1942, the first by a soldier of the 80th Infantry Regiment of the Pasubio Division (PM 83) and the second by a gunner of the 30th Army Corps Artillery, 62 Group (armed with 155/32 howitzer, the old 10.4 cm Feldkanone M. 15 captured by the Austrians during the First World War)

                    the third is a "franchigia" of one of the ost glorious Italian Regiment on the Russian front, the VI Reggimento Bersaglieri (PM 40 on a postcard sent September 1942) almost completely decimated during the retreat and decorated with two Military Gold Medals

                      two gold medals for the flag and eight individual ones ....

                      only a parenthesis ..... the Bersagliere who sent this military postcard, Bers.(Bersagliere) Marchionni Renato of Piacenza, as 70% of the soldiers of his Regiment, he is dead/dispersed in Russia shortly after his capture in February 1943 ....... I place in his memory a postcard of another great designer, Vittorio Pisani, dedicated to the machine-gunner motorcyclists of the 6 Bersaglieri Regiment (unfortunately new, not sent), and the memorial plaque of the Bersaglieriof the 6th fallen in Russia of the placed in the Mameli Barracks of Bologna (where they were before to leave for the Russia)

                        "six italians, dressed in rather unusual diving suits and equipped with materials of laughably little cost have swung the military balance of power in the Mediterranean in favour of the Axis".
