Such a nice group of awards. Could you possibly write the names of the medals? All I know is that these are Italian.

James Austin Domage does not sound very Italian, are there no other decorations or miniatures? With such a name I would be inclined to think that he is English or American. All awards seem to have been bestowed during the reign of Victor Emmanuel II.

Kind regards, Laurentius

Dolmage was a british officer as we can read.

A nice group of awards.

It's a pity that the award document to the Military Order of Savoy is not present.

It probably is. There seems to be some variation in what he called himself: sometimes James, sometimes Jonas - and then not always as his first name. More here,

More here from Burke's A genealogical and heraldic history of the landed gentry of Great Britain & Ireland (1906)

I suspect that he volunteered to serve with Garibaldi, as suggested by the reference you found, ilja559. In any event, the 1911 UK census shows that his son John was born in Sorrento in 1866.
