A Second War Italian 1st Division Alpine "Taurinense" Badge

Die-stamped bronze with a gold-coloured wash and green paint, 53.5 mm x 65.2 mm, one die hole in each of the the three points for uniform attachment, contact marks and surface wear evident on the wash, very fine. Footnote: The 1st Division Alpine "Taurinense" was a mountain division of the Italian Army based in Turin. The Division was established on September 10 1935, based on the 3rd and 4th Alpine Regiment and 1st Regiment of Artillery Alpina. Some departments were temporarily aggregates of the Division Alpine "Pusteria" and used in the operations of the Campaign of Ethiopia (1935-36). They served with the East Africa battalions "Exilles" and "Intra", and some batteries of artillery groups Alpine "Susa" and "AO". The staff of the Division was restructured in May 1937. The Division was also active during the Second World War, in various campaigns. By June 10, 1940, they were located in various points on the Alps front (Mont Cenis sector-Bardonecchia), involved in operations against France from the 10th to the 24th, occupying Bourg-St-Maurice St-Foy. By October 1940, there was a dissolution of the battalions "Valley", and the Alpine Division "Taurinense" was given the order to preside over the French territory between the border and the old armistice line. They landed at Ragusa, Italy in January 1942, to focus on Mostar, Croatia, as part of the XIV Corps. From April 15th to May 31st, they took part in anti-partisan operations in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. By August, they were transferred to operations in Montenegro, where they performed garrison duties until September 8th, when, following the events resulting from the proclamation of the armistice, the Division was dissolved while they were stationed on the Adriatic coast, in the hinterland of the military base of Kotor.
