Spitfire ix serials of 332 (French) Wing 1944-45

My interest is to find out if they ever operated the Spitfire LFIXe. So far I have only seen mentions of the Spitfire F.IX and the LFIX both with the C-wing.

Some accounts attribute Capitain "GeGe" Gauthier flew the IXe in his last fights but I assumed they would have been low in the pecking order for new Spitfires and the IXe was more likely kept by the Commonwealth and Polish squadrons. However I note that the LFXVIe was replacing the IXe in the RAF/RCAF/RNZAF squadrons
