1-img-326132639-0001This copy provided courtesy Bruce Eady: ” It is an official Italian army postcard which was sent free of postage by the troops. Soldiers had to put their unit details to get the free postage — in this case it was the Commando Divisione Fanteria “Puglie” ( 38 ). There is an army post office postmark of January 1941. These army postmarks deliberately didn’t disclose their location so unless we can discover where field post office N12 was we cannot pin down where it originated. Research needed !”
