World War II medal found in Tunisia

18 مارس 2010

This medal has been detected by the 3D metal detector eXp 5000 in North Africa. It is obviously a German-Italian locket. The inscription says: "Campagna Italo-Tedesca in Africa. Italienisch-Deutscher Feldzug in Afrika." This metal detector find reminds of the Italian-German campaign in Africa in 1937/1942. Mussolini's National Fascist Party created this Italian/German African campaign medal in memory of the actions of the German Africa Corps DAK (Deutsche Afrika Korps) in the North African campaign.
