    A mate is currently touring Sicily, and sending me pictures of pillboxes etc. with a 'wassat?' sort of message.
    My answers being mostly, 'it's a pillbox, mate, whaddya want? Blood?', the thought occurs that some of the more travelled/knowledgeable on here might have better info.

    Any idea what/where these might be - scraps of specific history?
    Long shot, but you never know. Some clever buggers round here.

    Did six weeks in Sicily with the 78th div but can't remember seeing either of those two pillboxes.

    If I rember rightly we have a few local Sicilians on the forum who might be able to help.

    One for Lee - The chap we know at Kew is into all this Italian 'stuff'. He found a map of Sicily the other week containing all the bunkers and MG positions, trenches etc on the island including the names/types I believe.

    I must say it was a bloody nice map :D
