Back from Gorizia

This post is the perfect “pendant” of the “Towards Gorizia” post published a long time ago. Indeed, the caption on the picture indicates that these italian soldiers are just back from “Italian Gorizia”, on August 25, 1916, exactly 99 years ago. Who knows if they found this puppy in that town?



Niccolò Baccerini

Niccolò Baccerini was 26 years old when he was killed on the Carso on October 22, 1915. There is no reference to his rank (I suppose he was private) nor to his regiment, which is more unusual.
