    Italian Marine Youth Cap Tally

    I would like to share this cap tally of the Marine Youth of Italy. At least this is what I believe it to be although I have no photos of it in wear. If anybody has more information or comments, I would appreciate it very much. Beizen7

    Hi, this ribbon is for the tally cap of the Marinaretti della G.I.L. - a pre-navy organisation for kids from 8 years old. Balilla kids could sign up for this. Here's the full uniform from a period table and a picture.

    Hi Pat
    it is not easy to answer your question. I'll ask in one of our local forums. I know only that from 1933 to 1934 ( XII year of the fascist era) there were 70.000 marinaretti, of which 26.000 later attended the qualification courses for specialty (gunner, etc). Basically the italian Youth worked on similar criteria of the DJ,HJ. You can find an organisation scheme in one of my posts in this same subforum.

    Dani will be coming back. He is at sea and not available right now but you should see him posting again in 4-6 weeks.

    I searched this subforum for the organization scheme but could not find it nor when I searched your threads and most of your posts could I find it. Could you direct me to where it is located.

    Thanks for the answer Zeller. I can't imagine there would have been heaps of members for this organisation.
