Veterans


Another picture linked to the Vets topic, after the one published yesterday evening. These men are, as far as I can see, Italian veterans. Unfortunately, I don’t have any clue about the date of this picture. The way the lady is dressed makes me think that the picture was shot before the Great War, maybe at the beginning of the century. These men seem to be in their 40’s. Probably too young for being veterans of the Risorgimento wars (which ended in 1870). Did they men take part to the First Italo-Ethiopian war in 1896?
