Italian Alpini recovering bodies of victims from United States Air Force aircraft C-47 which crashed in French Italian Alps, on October 24, 1954, while on a flight from Rome, Italy, to Lyon, France. The crash site is at 8,500 feet on Mount Carbonè, in Northern Maritime Alps,near Limone Piemonte, Cuneo, France. Italian Alpini (mountain troops) lead mules laden with bodies of crash victims, in canvas bags, down a mountain path. They are seen placing one such canvas bag into a coffin. A U.S. and an Italian officer then drape it with an American flag and Alpini pallbearers carry it to a waiting vehicle and gently place it on board. An Italian Alpini honor guard presents arms and its commander salutes.
