AC023 Gloster Gladiator Mk.II B Flight, No. 615 Squadron, France, 1940 Diecast Model Several squadrons of Gloster Gladiators fought with some success in the early days of WWII in France, alongside the RAF's newer Hawker Hurricane. 247 Squadron, equipped with Gloster Gladiator fighters were tasked with the defence of the Royal Navy Dockyards at Davenport and Plymouth during the Battle of Britain until replaced by Hawker Hurricanes. The Gloster Gladiator is probably best remembered for its stoic defence of Malta when three Gloster Gladiators, nicknamed Faith, Hope and Charity, although outgunned and outperformed, held off the might of the six air force until relieved by the Hawker Hurricanes of 261 Squadron.
