List of Sicilians from Forza D'Agro who died in the First and Second World Wars

Just off the town square on the Viale delle Remembranze, there are two white marble plaques commemorating those who died in the first and second world wars. I took a couple of photos of them, here are the soldiers named:

These are as they appear, except I've not put first names in caps, for easier reading.
