Hi desantii,

Although the photograph is of poor quality I believe that your Grandfather (#3) appears to be wearing a Pilots' or Observers' badge, as well as what may be two air force badges underneath his substantial riband (ribbon) bars. Furthermore, he appears to be in the uniform of the Camicie Nere (Black Shirts).

Do you have any further information regarding his service? Anything air force/flying related from the First World War and inter-war period (1919-1940?).

Kind regards (and Merry Christmas),

James
