Giuseppe Passalalpi

In March 2005, I received an email from an Italian, Silvio Passalalpi. Silvio wrote to me because he is trying to find out some information about the POW camps which his father, Giuseppe Passalalpi, had been held in as a POW in Great Britain during WWII.

Silvio provided his father's transfer document:

Using the document you can see that Giuseppe Passalalpi was a member of the 20th Brescia Infantry Regiment of the 27th Brescia Infantry Division. This division was attached to the Italian X Corps at the Battle of El Alamein during which it was effectively destroyed by the British 8th Army. The division was commanded by Generale di Divisione Brunetto Brunetti who was likewise captured by the British.

Map depicting the Battle of El Alamein.
Note the positions held by the Italian 27th Brescia Infantry Division to the southwest of Generalmajor Hermann-Bernhard Ramcke’s Fallschirmjäger-Brigade 1 and to the north of the Italian 185th Folgore Parachute Division. When the Axis armoured and motorized divisions retreated to the west, the non-motorized Italian divisions, including the Brescia, were left stranded in the deep desert. With no real options (or water) left, they were forced to surrender. Ramcke, however, led the remnants of his brigade out of the desert on foot ! (See profile)

The transfer document also shows the path across the British POW camps.

Post card written by Giuseppe Passalalpi from Camp 306 July 15 1942

Camp 306 is believed to be in Egypt. This reason for this is not only because on the card is written: Italian Prisoners of War Camp 306 Egypt but also because of the date the card was sent. Giuseppe Passalalpi was captured on July 15 1942 so at that time he was still in Egypt around El Alamein. Later on he was transferred to South Africa but the location is unknown.
