Tx 4 sharing, Rob. I found the 2nd clip particularly interesting. On 1st viewing, I thought it was the 1956 run for Cortina becuz I saw those roller skates (starting around 1:30). And then this evening the (1948) caught my eye. So, wait a minute...it turns out to be the run for London 1948. Too bad there is no audio for that one. Am surprised that the Italian army had already reorganized by 1948 and had their young cadets run the relay in Italy in their khakis or gabardines or what have you.
