Golden Medal to the Military Valour
Decree of 18th April 1992
Worthy of its past traditions, in 34 months of difficult battles on the Alps and on the mounts of Albania, included in the glorious "Trieste" Division, it always gave admirable proofs of courage, expressing its virtues through the Commander and the 223 Artillerymen heroically fallen on battlefield. Thanks to the expertise and the valour of its batteries, with energy and blood tributes, it contributed efficiently to ensure to its Division the resistance, the barging and the engagement of the enemy that was superior in terms of forces and vehicles. It showed heroism, tenacity and faith that will always give honour and glory to the Artillery. Western, Greek, Albanian fronts; Northern Africa. 10th June 1940 – 12th May 1943.
