Before getting onto the ‘serious business’ of the Chain of Command lists, I thought I’d share this rather odd pice of footage I found snooping about.
The Italians were nothing if not inventive. The Abyssinian theatre saw large scale air supply for the first time by a major European power. None is more unusual than this airdrop by ‘para-sheep’.
No doubt scary for the beasts they nevertheless seem to survive relatively unscathed…only to end up on the plates of the troops later on…just when you thought you had seen it all!!
