On 27th May 1940 Lt Lydekker was involved in combat near Bodo. His Gladiator was damaged and Lydekker was wounded in the neck and unable to land back at Bodo due to prowling Bf110s he flew to Bardufoss where he crash landed, reportedly wrecking his aircraft.

Would anyone know the serial of Lydekkers Gladiator? I have traced the serials of 7 of the 8 Gladiators that were lost on operations. If I can trace this serial then I will know the identity of the ten Gladiators that went down with HMS Glorious on 8th June.

Any help appreciated.
