History.

On 8 September 1943 the Kingdom of Italy surrendered to the Allies. Italy split in two, and a Nazi-fascist puppet state led by Benito Mussolini was created in the north under German control. On 25 April 1945, more than 20 months after the start of the civil war, the leaders of the CLN (National Liberation Committee) organized the insurrection known as the Great Partisan Insurrection, preceded by a large workers’ strike in all the factories of Northern Italy still in activity. Until the beginning of 1945 the Nazi-Fascist forces controlled most of the main roads and the most important cities, but as time passed and the Fascist forces diminished, the partisans began to capture RSI and German vehicles instead of destroying them. Although their service is poorly documented, Italian partisans managed to deploy a variety of German, Italian and Allied-made armored vehicles in the final days of the war on Italian soil. Among these were a handful of AB41 and 43 series armored cars which were reused against their former owners. One of these armored cars, an AB43 specifically, was used in Como to press the partisan unit known as the 79th Garibaldi Brigade, which applied the name of its unit to the armored car

The decal.

The decal itself is very simple and consists of the writing “79^ Garibaldi Brigade” divided into two lines. The first says “79^ Brigade” and the second says “Garibaldi.”
