Indeed:

Quote:
The brothels were owned by private metresses, but they were opened only when allowed by the "Direzione della tappe" (more or less the logistics and rear front direction), after having consulted the local command. The women, forniture, etc. were of the metress, while the houses and the transport means were of the Army. The brothels were under strict sanitary and police control.
On 28 June 1942 the command of Cyrenaic Gebel allowed the opeining of 8 brothels in Barce, divided into 5 classes (categorie):
- 1st: only for officers and government employees (tariff: 50 lire)
- 2nd: officers (40 lire), NCOs (35 lire), troop (30 lire), civilians (40 lire)
- 3rd: officers (35 lire), NCOs (25 lire), troop (20 lire), civilians (30 lire)
The following classes employed Libyan women, instead the first 3 classes had Italian women:
- 4th: only for Europeans (from 25 to 15 lire)
- 5th: only for natives (12 lire)

The hours of opening were different for Europeans (9 - 12; 15 - 20; 21 - 24) and natives (9 - 12 and 14 - 19).

On the front brothels were sometimes opened, after official request and with Italian women under medical control, in "activity tents" for "phisiologic service".
