Lieutenant Madon GCII/7

Can anyone tell me anything of this pilot? He was the leader of the 3rd (sometimes called the 1st) Escadrille of GCII/7. He made three shared unconfirmed claims on 26 November 1943, and was leading the Escadrille when it flew the D520, possibly in the period 1940-41.

regards

Keith

You probably have seen these, but for the rest of us they give a little background.
