I am looking for some help to attain a military record for Luigi Gascone.

I believe he was with the Alpini 1st mountain artillery battery 1st Regiment Turin “Susa” Service anything from 1906-1935 as a guess as I have two photos one stating 1926 and another with him and another soldier holding up a hat saying 1906

I believe he was from a small town called Susa outside Turin and was in the Piedmont region if that helps.

FamilySearch.org lists a document set called "Documenti militari. Circondario di Torino, 1804-1910." These are the "military muster rolls and draft lists from the province of Torino" (Turin). The catalog note indicates that the date of the roll is generally the year of birth of the draftee.

This may have your Luigi Gascone in it. The records are digitized, but can be viewed only at an LDS Family History Center. https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/651761

  • Hi, FamilySearch is free, but you do need to have an account there. All they ask is an email address. – shoover Apr 14 at 19:50
  • Thanks I have been given his date of birth now it appears to be 21 may 1906 so he won’t appear on that list I would imagine as too young if we assume he joined at 18 that’s 1924 so could be looking fir 1924 - ww2 – Yogi82 Apr 15 at 8:35
  • @Yogi82 I think he would be on the 1906 roll. The catalog note indicates that the date of the roll is generally the year of birth of the draftee. – shoover Apr 15 at 21:00
