Where did you find this picture?
My Grandparents lived in a nearby village that was liberated by Canadians on November 4, 1943.
Edit: You can actually see Campochiaro on this map:
“Simultaneously, The Carleton and York Regiment was operating on the extreme left flank of the 1st Canadian Division, clearing Guardiaregia, Campochiaro and San Polo Matese, all of which overlooked the narrow plain containing the highway west from Vinchiaturo. Enemy fire on these highly inaccessible locations made the going difficult. Guardiaregia fell on 18 October, Campochiaro on the 21st with assistance from tanks of the Ontario Regiment.”
