    Your post at 1112 is not at Anzio. I suspect that it is around the Ardea area because that is where the two British Divisions advanced towards Rome when they broke out of Anzio on 23 May 44.

    Your post at 1118 of the two German tanks is indeed the Anzio-Albano Road - somewhere on the road between the Flyover and Campoleone.

    Your post at 1157 is, I think, just north of the Flyover.

    Regards

    Frank

    A man can never have enough photos of Castle Hill. It looks as if the reconstruction work has just begun, which makes me think late-44 or 45-46.

    The motorcycles look like Triumph 3HWs. Nice to see the mixture of lorries and tractors there, Scammells to Canadian Pattern.

    See this thread. It may help, might be a different REME unit though.

    It says this ..
    July 1944 - Rome - located at Innocenti Workshops until the roof collapsed (caused 40 casualties, including 4 dead) - moved to Breda Works Rome until August 1945.
