Milizia Forestale (MVSN)

Postby freiwillige » 26 May 2005 08:13

Hello,

I'm trying to locate info about the Milizia Forestale(Forestry Militia) of the M.V.S.N. in military operations, specially in the R.S.I. period.

I have found this page:

(about operations of the Militia in East Africa)

Regards,
Ferran

complicated...the Milizia Forestale had been formed in 1926 for trasformation of the precedent Corpo Reale delle Foreste and incorporated in Armed Forces.
In this way, it had to partecipate to italian wars. In 1943, the royal government cancelled the Milizia Forestale and recreate the Corpo Reale delle Foreste which in 1946 assumed the actual name of Corpo Forestale dello Stato
(official page: http://www.corpoforestale.it/wai/CFS/st ... _1945.html)

I ignore what happened in RSI in particular if Milizia Forestale passed under Guardia Nazionale Repubblicana as other militia or served in some way an indipendent role

During RSI time, kept its organization in Legions, the same as before, during MVSN years, and still with its duties as protection of the florests and controlling hunting and fishing up to May 1945.
On 11. Dec 1944 changed its name in GUARDIA NAZIONALE REPUBBLICANA DELLA MONTAGNA E DELLE FORESTE, with Mussolini Decree n. 908, adding to its duties the armed defence of water and mining resources.
Commanded by Col. Amedeo VERGER (Nov. 1943 - Jun. 1944) and latare by Gen. Mario CANDELORI (Jun. 1944 - May 1945)
