Climbers


As weather remains hot in Europe, let’s bring some freshness with this drawing of Italian Alpini climbing mountains with a field artillery gun… As usual, the author is the famous Achille Beltrame and the picture was published in the Domenica del Corriere weekly!

The orders


Saturday was my lucky day. I had found in a flea market the grater I wrote about yesterday, but I was able to find by another reseller some very interesting paper documents, mainly about war in Italy, to be more precise written by the “Comando di Val Zebrù“. Here’s  an example, with handwritten order for sentry duty. I still have to study these documents, which will be a wonderful basis for some article!
