    Just out of curiosity why the use of what I would call a "degree" symbol when enumeration squadron membership. I have noticed it in many places so I am sure it is entirely correct but I am unfamiliar with the nomenclature in this case. How would that symbol be spoken in this context?

    IIRC it's rather like the "rd", "nd" or "st" associated with numerically identified units (eg the 23rd Squadron or 41st Group etc).

    That makes sense, but one wonders why use the symbol which is harder to enter on a keyboard than the equivalent "rd", "nd", or "st"? I would guess it is a European thing as I have never seen similar symbology used in US documents.

    Exactly, that is in italian. "3 ° " means "Terzo" (third" while ") 28°" means " ventottesimo", say 28th in english.

    By the way "Stormo" is Wing, "Gruppo" is Squadron and "Squadriglia" is Flight.
    So Stormo>Gruppo>Squadriglia.

    Or should this be in the "If it can fly it can float" thread?
