Need help identifying a photo

Post by TheMagicalSquid » 09 Oct 2018 01:27

Hello, this is my first time posting on these forums. I'm sorry if this seems like the wrong place to post this sort of thing. I was wondering if it was possible that someone could identify what division and rank the person in the photo was from. The only information I know is that he was a navy pilot in the Italian army during WW2.

As a navy pilot he would be part of the Air Force (Regia Aeronautica) but attached to the Navy (Regia Marina). From my very limited experience he seems to be a non-commissioned officer of the Regia Aeronautica, but I can't say anything more..

The cap is for enlisted or sergent of Regia Aereonautica( Royal Air Force). He wear also a poket badge for flying personal, not pilot. maybe photograph,or motorist, non clear photo!
