DFC  17/04/1945  Flying Officer Raymond Arthur BOGGIANO (148794), R.A.F.V.R, 156 Sqn

This officer has completed very many attacks against targets in Germany. He is a highly skilled pilot whose determination to complete his missions successfully was well illustrated on one occasion in March, 1945, when detailed to attack Mannheim. On the outward flight the port outer engine became unserviceable. Although much height and some airspeed were lost, Flying Officer Boggiano went on to the target and executed a successful attack

This officer has displayed exceptional keenness and has set a fine example to all.

ORB  23/11/1944  F/O R.A. Boggiano and crew arrived from PFFNTU (ex 576 Sqn) 
ORB  1/03/1945  An engine also failed in F/O Boggiano's aircraft two hours from the target. He pressed on and bombed late. He was picked up by our fighters as a straggler, and again escorted from the target. He sucessfully crept back and landed at base 1 hour 20 mins after the others had landed.
