I have a question for the uniform experts here: wasn't the red "M" on the black collar emblems adopted in later years, after 1942? I have read that it was a sort of a "distinguished service" decoration that was awarded to those CC.NN. units that proved their toughness in combat. Am I completely wrong?

Best regards

You're completely right. Those CC.NN. battalions which distinguished in battle, were named after "Assault Battalions" and were allowed to wear the red-M collar patch.

:?:
Are you completely sure? I always thought that this collar device was worn since 1941 by the M battalions, like 63rd Tagliamento. Later it was adopted by other CC.NN. battalions which distinguished in battle.
So, who's right? :wink:

I was under the impression that the Tagliamento wore the "M" distinction on the breast of the tunic. I may have gathered this from a single photo I have seen. Not much evidence from just one photo. From another book of photos of the Tagliomento in Russia...many of the soldatos did not have this distinction in evidence. Perhaps there was a low priority in getting this distinction to the CCNN troops in Russia? It is also my understanding that the "M" distinction was started in August of 1941. I have an original "M" device that I highly prize. Interesting topic. Arditi

Tagliamento legion was formed in February 1941. In August 1941 when it has transfered on East front as part of CSIR, it’s complete name was 63a Legione CC.NN. d'Assalto "«Tagliamento". Legion consist of two battalions "Ě": LXIII Btg CC.NN "Udine" and LXXIX Btg CC.NN. " Reggio Emilia " (besides 103a Cp. mitr. CC.NN. and 183a Cp. mitr. CC.NN). The officers and soldiers carried red badges "M" on their black collar flames.


In the spring of the last year I was in Kiev, where communicated with two russian veterans of the Second World War. They served in independent reconnaissance battalion, acting in sector of the Italian departments. Veterans told, that in one operation were captured several Italians. There were blackshirts. Russians were interested by strange letters "M" on collar tabs. One of them has broken this badge on memory. This letter "M" till now is kept at him.

Interesting link of re-group "Bataglioni M" (Squadra del 79° Battaglione Camicie Nere d'Assalto "M" di Reggio Emilia). This battalion was part of Tagliamento legion.

Great photos and story. Maybe the "M" device was more prevalent in Russia(with the Tagl.) than I thought? It would have been cool if you could have gotten a photo of the vet with the captured "M" device. Thanks for sharing, Arditi
