Morane Saulnier M.S. 406 of GC I/3

Here we see the pilot of a Morane Saulnier M.S. 406 of GC I/3 (the 1st Groupe de Chasse of the 3rd Escadre), with the black cross cut from a Messerschmitt fighter he had shot down. The aircraft's unit can be identified by the snake symbol of SPA 88, the First World War unit that one of the group's two squadrons was descended from.
