A 184th Italian Airborne Division Nembo Commemorative Medal - Bronze, 28 mm, original ribbon, very light contact, extremely fine. Footnote: 184th Airborne Division Nembo (184th Divisione Paracadutisti Nembo) was an airborne division of the Italian Army during World War II. The Nembo was formed in December 1942 from the 185 Parachute Regiment of the 185 Airborne Division Folgore. The 185 Parachute Regiment was sent to northeastern Italy to fight Yugoslav partisans, and was later sent to Sicily, where it fought against the Allied invasion there. It also fought on the mainland when Sicily was evacuated. The rest of the division was sent to Sardinia in June 1943. After the Italian surrender, a significant part of the Nembo went over to the German side, eventually becoming the basis of the 4th Fallschirmjäger Division.
