Major Ferruccio Vosilla

Ferruccio Vosilla, nicknamed 'the gunslinger' due to his habit of carrying a pearl-butted gun in-flight, began his career during the Spanish Civil War as Captain in command of an autonomous ground attack squadron, and afterwards became commander of the 18th Fighter Group which was armed with CR.32 fighters. From November 1940, the unit, re-equipped with the CR.42, operated on the front line with France, and afterwards Vosilla participated in the Battle of Britain with the Italian Air Corps. From January 1941, he commanded the unit in North Africa where he obtained three confirmed victories, plus four probable ones and carried out numerous attacks against British aircraft with the CR.42 which was equipped with underwing bomb racks. In the spring of 1942 he gave up command of that unit to take on the job of colonel of the 50th Assault Squadron.

Captain Enzo Martissa

Enzo Martissa was a voluntary pilot with the 96th Squadron of the 9th Fighter Group during the Spanish Civil War in 1938. At the beginning of World War II he participated in operations in North Africa with the 4th Wing, based in Benghazi where he obtained a personal victory by carrying out numerous missions against English aircraft and, in collaboration with other pilots, shot down 11 enemy aircraft. During a violent battle with British fighters on July 24th, 1940, he was wounded and forced to crash-land in the desert. In the hours spent waiting for help, he wrote an inscription on his plane which later became famous within his unit. He was rescued by a group of Italian soldiers and, although restricted by his injuries, he returned to service as an instructor at the Fighter Pilot School of Gorizia.
