37th Infantry Division Modena

The 37th Infantry Division Modena was a mountain Infantry Division of the Italian Army during World War II. It was formed 25 March 1939, from the parts of the Territorial Division Imperia 5a, it was made up of men from Genoa and Liguria. The only difference between line infantry divisions and mountain infantry divisions was that the latter's artillery was carried by pack mules instead of the standard horse-drawn carriages. Italy's real mountain warfare divisions were the six alpine divisions manned by the "Alpini" mountain troops. 10 June 1940, the Modena division was placed at Sanremo city as part of Italian XV Corps. Securing a border section from Monte Grammondo to north; the division has crossed a border 21 June 1940 near the Cima di Anan and mount Aine to east of Breil-sur-Roya, aiming to fortified pass of Col de Brouis and pass Col du Perus. 26 June 1940, the Modena division was recalled to Belluno. After the invasion of France the Modena was sent to Albania and joined the Italian XXV Corps which took part in the Greco-Italian War.

It was gathered on staging grounds of Derviçian south of Gjirokastër, together with 47th Infantry Division Bari on right flank of 23rd Infantry Division Ferrara. It has relived the embattled 23rd Infantry Division Ferrara on 3 December 1940; the Modena division was able to repel the initial Greek attack on Maja e Buzë Derrit until 6 December 1940. But the Greek have shifted attacks to Progonat-Golëm sector 12 December 1940 making a dangerous breakthroughs. Reserves were brought to front-line and all initial positions were regained by night - to no avail; the Italian positions at mountain pass of Golëm has been overrun by Greek 13 December 1940. The Greek forces have advanced over 10 kilometers to mount Mali i Pleshevices, which held off the attack. 15 December 1940, the Modena division have lost Progonat. At about the same time, the loss of mount Maja e Buzë Derrit by Modena have endangered the positions of the remnants of 23rd Infantry Division Ferrara on left flank, forcing Ferrara to perform a numerous costly counter-attacks.

19 December 1940, the Modena made a stand between Gusmar and Lekdush villages in Kurvelesh municipality, managing to stop a Greek advance. The positions of Modena were reinforced at the north by 232th regiment of 11th Infantry Division Brennero 10 January 1941, during defence of Tepelenë, by 18th regiment of 33rd Mountain Infantry Division Acqui. In January–February, 1941, the Modena division found itself holding a nearly impassable terrain. Although it simplified defence, the supply was inadequate, with large fraction of supplies delivered by aircraft. 9–10 March 1941, the Modena division have performed a diversion attacks near Progonat to tie up an opposing Greek units and prevent reinforcements reaching Kolonjë, Gjirokastër, where other Italian units have made a main strike. As Greek resistance collapsed, the Modena division have advanced to Golëm and Mali i Thate, Tepelenë District, 13–14 April 1941.

Lucille Bogan

Lucille Bogan was an American singer-songwriter, among the first to be recorded. She recorded under the pseudonym Bessie Jackson; the music critic Ernest Borneman stated that Bogan was one of "the big three of the blues", along with Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith. Many of Bogan's songs have been covered by blues and jazz musicians, including Buddy Guy, B. B. King, Sonny Boy Williamson. Many of her songs were sexually explicit, she was considered to have been a dirty blues musician, she was born Lucille Anderson in Amory and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1914, she married Nazareth Lee Bogan, a railwayman, gave birth to a son, Nazareth Jr. in either 1915 or 1916. She divorced Bogan and married James Spencer, 22 years younger than she, she first recorded vaudeville songs for Okeh Records in New York in 1923, with the pianist Henry Callens. That year she recorded "Pawn Shop Blues" in Atlanta, Georgia. In 1927 she began recording for Paramount Records in Grafton, where she recorded her first big success, "Sweet Petunia", covered by Blind Blake.

She recorded for Brunswick Records, backed by Tampa Red. By 1930 her songs tended to concern drinking and sex, such as "Sloppy Drunk Blues" and "Tricks Ain't Walkin' No More", she recorded the original version of "Black Angel Blues", covered by B. B. King and many others. With her experience in some of the rowdier juke joints of the 1920s, many of Bogan's songs, most of which she wrote herself, have thinly veiled humorous sexual references; the theme of prostitution, in particular, featured prominently in several of her recordings. One of these was "Groceries on the Shelf", written and recorded by Charlie "Specks" McFadden. Piggly Wiggly is the name of a successful American supermarket chain, operating in the South and the Midwest, which first opened in 1916. Bogan used the self-service notion in her amended lyrics to the song, part of which ran, "My name is Piggly Wiggly and I swear you can help yourself, And you've got to have your greenback, it don't take nothin' else". In 1933, she returned to New York, to conceal her identity, began recording as Bessie Jackson for the Banner label of ARC.

She was accompanied on piano by Walter Roland, with whom she recorded over 100 songs between 1933 and 1935, including some of her biggest commercial successes, "Seaboard Blues", "Troubled Mind", "Superstitious Blues". Her other songs include "Stew Meat Blues", "Coffee Grindin' Blues", "My Georgia Grind", "Honeycomb Man", "Mr. Screw Worm in Trouble", "Bo Hog Blues", her final recordings with Roland and Josh White include two takes of "Shave'Em Dry", recorded in New York on Tuesday, March 5, 1935. The unexpurgated alternate take is notorious for its explicit sexual references, a unique record of the lyrics sung in after-hours adult clubs. According to Keith Briggs' liner notes for Document Records Complete Recordings, these were recorded either for the fun of the recording engineers, or for "clandestine distribution as a'Party Record.'" Briggs notes that Bogan seems to be unfamiliar with the lyrics, reading them as she sings them surprised by them herself. Another of her songs, "B. D. Woman's Blues", takes the position of a "bull dyke", with the lyrics "Comin' a time, B.

D. women, they ain't gonna need no men", "They got a head like a sweet angel and they walk just like a natural man" and "They can lay their jive just like a natural man". She appears not to have recorded after 1935, she managed her son's jazz group, Bogan's Birmingham Busters, for a time, before moving to Los Angeles shortly before her death from coronary sclerosis in 1948. She is interred in Compton, California. Document Records issued her complete recordings in a series of releases.
