Dear Sir:
     I have found that Gustave Blondeau was born on the 8th of March 1871, in Tergnier. He died on the 3rd of March 1965. His death is noted on the London Gazette website. You can find the page (in PDF format) by clicking on the page below:

     His date of birth was noted in the magazine "Flight" in Feb. 1911. Just thought you may like to add this information to your website.

     Using the Google search engine on "Gustave Blondeau", (4-20-07), you will find about 54 links. One of the best is the following.

     On this page you will find a truly remarkable story of Mrs. Maurice Hewlett and Gustav Blondeau who formed the Hewlett & Blondeau Company in 1914. There are rather comprehensive biographies of both Hewlett and Blondeau, as well as a fascinating story of their activities during World War I and afterward. You can access the site by clicking on the title above.
