Can some one help me with information about aItalian unit that was stationed in the area of Primasole Bridge in June 1943 and that saw action against the British forces. I believe that they were part of the 2nd Battalion, 10th Arditi Regiment. Anything will do!

Correct, a detachment (6 trucks) of 113rd truck company, II battalion, 10th Arditi Regiment, commander Cpt. Paradisi. The unit lost 4 trucks and 25 men in the action. The unit was not "stationed" near bridge butwas sent as a reinforce on german call.
The 2nd Arditi Battalion had been deployed in Sicily in May 1943 with anti-para/special forces tasks
