CHARITABLE ADVERTISING on Web Site There are many worthwhile charitable causes in existence, but we can only accept sponsorship or fundraising efforts on Fusilier Association websites, that specifically support approved Fusilier charities. This essentially means that it is acceptable to use these pages to seek sponsorship for The Fusiliers Aid Society (which includes Fallen Fusiliers), and The Fusilier Memorial fund only. We now have our own dedicated justgiving site (http://www.justgiving.com/fusiliersaidsociety), which you can use to help raise money for your cause. If you let RHQ (Asst Regt Sec) know the specific cause you are raising money for, it will be directed to the correct fund. Messages soliciting sponsorship for causes or charities other than the Fusilier ones mentioned above should not be placed on the message board and may be removed by the Webmaster.

Good Afternoon George
Many thanks for your post.
A quick check on Google shows that Guido was a prolific author of books with a military theme, particularly books regarding Army Badges and Insignia. Several of his works are available on either eBay or Amazon.
As you will undoubtedly appreciate those members of the Lancashire Fusiliers (2nd Bn) who served in Trieste in the early 50's, are now extremely thin on the ground.
The Fusilier Association based in the Fusilier Museum Bury, once had a Trieste Branch, whose members met on a fairly regular basis. Sadly, several years ago, due to dwindling numbers, the Branch ceased their activities and no longer meet up. Their may be the odd Trieste Veteran who still looks in on the Web Site, who perhaps knew of Guido, but I think in truth that it is very unlikely. Trieste Veterans will now be into their late 80's or 90's.
Please click on the link below which will take you to the Trieste Page on the Web Site. I'm sure it will be of interest to you.
I have checked Guido Rosignoli through the LF Web Site Search Engine but he has not had a previous mention.
Hopefully a former Trieste Veteran will look in and say...yes!! I recall him.
