Gladiator Mk.II sériového čísla N5905 nesl kód N-HE - volací znak 263. perutě. Na jaře 1940 se zúčastnil z letiště Bardufoss akcí nad Norskem. 2. června na něm letěl Sgt. H. H. Kitchener a společně s Flt. Lt. A. T. Williamsem vybojoval 4 jisté a 3 pravděpodobné sestřely v boji s německými bombardéry He 111 a Ju 87. Letoun byl ztracen 8. června 1940 při potopení letadlové lodě HMS Glorious německými válečnými loděmi.
