This has been a tough one. I'm trying to identify who this is. He's an Italian General, and a highly decorated one, with four medals of valour, two crosses of war merit (Croce al Merito di Guerra), and a French Croix de Guerre. Plus a minimum 16 years of service cross, and numerous high royal awards. He also has WW1 medals representing the 1st, 3rd, 8th, and 10th Army Divisions. My ability to decipher his autograph has failed. It's dedicated to a "Mrs. Kirby" (I think) and dated 1924.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you.
