The Earl of Cavan decorating a British soldier


To be more precise, it is a soldier of the 1/4th Royal Berkshire Regiment, 48th division, and the scene took place in Granezza (Italy) in September 1918.

HRH the Prince of Wales in Italy


A rather well-known picture, but still nice. In almost all the book and diaries of Allied officers having fought in Italy during the Great War, I have found some lines dedicated to the Prince of Wales, who was a true PR, it seems! Indeed, everyone seems to have appreciated the kindness of the future British king.
