"Ovunque con onore"
The 6th Transports Regiment was constituted on 27th June 2001 after the reconfiguration of the "Friuli" Logistic Battalion.
The "Friuli" Logistic Battalion inherited the tradition of the RRR Unit and the auto-unit of the Infantry Brigade, both originated from the Transports Unit of the "Friuli" Infantry Division. They participated in a lot of events with the "Friuli" Division before 8th September 1943 and later with the "Friuli" Combat Group that distinguished for the spirit of sacrifice and valour showed in the battle along the Senio river, when the city of Bologna was freed.
In the most recent history of our Nation we can find the auto-unit and the RRR unit of the "Friuli" Brigade deployed on the occasion of the earthquake on 4th November 1966 that devastated the city of Florence. The rescue operations, started from the "Perotti" barracks, lasted until April 1967.
