Fronte Macedone 1916-1918 : an Italian perspective

It was a pleasure to hear from Prof. PhD Fabio Cotifava from Mantova in Italy recently. With a group of like-minded friends Fabio has created a website dedicated to the Salonika campaign, to promote the campaign in Italy where, as in the UK, it is largely forgotten. Although the content is mainly in Italian, he hopes to include more in English but, even so, you are sure to find much of interest as there are many photographs. The web address is: http://www.frontemacedone.com/

I’m not sure that we have ever had anything on the Italians in the campaign in The New Mosquito, so I will attempt to redress the balance with something on this website very soon.

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society's journal, 'The New Mosquito', a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society's web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915-1917, mainly in the Struma valley.
