Help identify uniform of Italian ancestor

Help identify uniform of Italian ancestor

Hi All,
I found this old picture of one of my ancestors (Italian).
Is he in some type of military uniform? If so, can anybody identify what type and from about what time period? I was guessing this picture is from the 1880's.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm stumped.
Thanks,
Andy

This looks like one of my relatives. Do you know who this is a photo, it's a WW1 uniform.

Hi there!
Yes! Thank you. I certainly know who this is as he is my Grandma's brother. If you could please tell me a little bit more about yourself, I would love to tell you and possibly share more. I see you just became a member today and I don't see a tree listed, so please understand I am a little cautious.

PS. If your name is your member name, I think you have the right person :)

Oh my Gosh!! You are certainly my relative!! My grandmother was Sophie and her sister Teresa lived with us, in my house growing up, after Sophie died.
Are you Ralph, mostly known as "Charlie"s son or Luigi's son (who I was told never married) :)

I am Ralph's son, Vincent. I was told that Luigi never married. Are you Celeste's daughter. Celeste used to like to be called "C". Anthony is her brother.

You will not believe this, but I visited your dad's grave last week!! I had been working for years on trying to locate him, since all who might have known, were gone!! I knew very little about Ralph, but I have pictures!! I found a burial record last week on Ancestry.

I remember that name, Shaffer. When I was a kid we used to go to Sophie and Tony's house on Sundays for big dinners. I couldn't have been more than 8 or ten year's old. There were a lot of people there. What is your first name?

Maybe it would be easier if you contacted me via email. My email is
