Thanks for the info and the picture,on that partisan subject i saw this info on a site today below.

Generalmajor Wilhelm Crisolli was the Commander of the 20th Luftwaffe Field Division. He was killed in a partisan ambush near Bologna on September 12, 1944. This was a few weeks before the Germans launched a massive anti-partisan assault in the area south of Bologna, Sept 29- Oct 2, which became known as the Monte Sole massacre or the Massacre of Marzabotta. (Reference Silence on Monte Sole book review). It is interesting that some units of the Herman Goring Division participated in this "mopping-up" action--sending Luftwaffe troops to take retribution for the killing of a Luftwaffe officer.
