The Alpini, or Alpine troops of the Italian Army, have done splendid service in the mountain warfare all along the Austrian frontier. Our drawingt shows a machine-gun section in action above the snow-line on Monte Nero, at a height of some 6500oo feet, against Tyrolese troops. The Alpini are distinguished by their felt hate with turned-up


brim and single black-eagle plunme. They wear uniform tacea wnh green an Aupine boots laced to the knee. One of their recent exploits was : “On the upper Boite our Alpini, after having with great daring scaled Monte Tofana, surprised, in the valley of Travonanues the hostile troops who were entrenched, and codquered the position.” J
