At 07:00 on 24-Apr-1940, eighteen Gloster Gladiators of 263 Sqn, landed on the frozen surface of Lake Lesjaskog in Norway. They had been brought to Norway on the aircraft carrier HMS Glorious. Sadly the following day saw terrible losses for the RAF with dogfighting all day - thirteen Gladiators, including this one, were bombed and destroyed on the lake by the Luftwaffe. This aircraft was recovered from the lake.
