    Good evening,

    I am trying to find more info on an Allied officer, named by a local history source as "Major H. Robert Mac Donald Military Corps I. S.". Hereunder, the already available data:

    1. He fought with Italian partisans in North-West Italy, Piemonte (Piedmont), in the Biella and Vercelli provinces.
    2. On August 22nd, 1944, he took a picture of a partisan commander, Giovanni Gremmo (Battlename Adrien or Adrian, "Aldo Brina" Battalion) in Buronzo, near Vercelli.

    Since the partisan commander was my girlfriend's late father, and due to my previous researches on Allied POWs in Piemonte and Aosta Valley, I would be really interested in finding Maj. Mac Donald's nationality, personal history, fate and so on. Just for instance, I would like to know if he was a special forces operator, an Intelligence Service member ("I.S."?) or an escaped prisoner of war, like many others here after the Armistice.

    Thank you in advance for your kind help, and my best regards.
