I have heard that a unit of Croats was recruited in Dalmatia by the Regia Marina, and served alongside the San Marco marines in that region. But I know nothing about them (not even what this unit was called), or whether the Regia Marina recruited any other foreign Europeans during the war. I'm curious to know.

In Dalmatia in the RM bases served a BTG of MVAC (Milizia Volontaria Anti Comunista) formed from locals, mostly Italians etnhics.
In Eritrea some Germans sailors( from german vessels repairated here) where incorporated in RM units.
