Hap Hazard: Don't know if this helps ...

Vittorio Bonomi began as a reconnaissance pilot. In May 1916, sottotenenti Bonomi was with the newly-formed 48 Squadriglia, VII Gruppo, at Belluno in the Veneto region. At that point 48 Squadriglia's Farman MF.11s were about to be replaced by twin-engined Caudron G.4s

By May 1917, tenente Bonomi commanded a new fighter unit - 2 Sezione, 83 Squadriglia of the XII Gruppo - still at Belluno. II/83 Squadriglia flew the Macchi-Nieuport 11. (The best-known of 2 Sezione pilots was sergente Arturo Dell'Oro, killed in a ramming attack on 01 Sept 1917.) By November 1917, II/83 Squadriglia had relocated to Marcon near Venice. In 1918, 2 Sezione became part of the IX Gruppo Ricognizione d'Armata e Caccia at Castendedolo.
