During the Second World War, Bonny joined the French Gestapo, known as the Carlingue. He was executed by firing squad in 1944.



Besides the overwhelming memory of a traitor and unscrupulous collaborator, he commonly incarnates the figure of a corrupt man, the executor of the lower works of the Vichy regime.



He is held to be the basis for the character of Monsieur Philibert in Patrick Modiano's wartime-set novel La Ronde de Nuit
