The name is René Papillon, and he was made naval attaché in 1932. More info on him here:

Following this source René Papillon has died in 1941, but they say nothing about his work during the years 1932-1941. They say nothing about these years, because their source is dated from 1932 (http://www.culture.gouv.fr/LH/LH103/PG/ ... 065594.htm).
So it can be him, but... i have read A. Papillon, not R. Papillon. Of course A and R can be very similar with handcriting ; but anyone could repost the original photo and text we are talking about ? I dont find? It should be possible to distinguish between A and R...
I am intrigued, because it's not impossible that it could be A. Paul Pillon... "Paul Pillon" and "Papillon" are sounding very similar ; so maybe it's an error.
