    ((Rob Morgan submits the following comment))

    In my Battle of Britain article, I didn’t mention that from August 1940, a small number, initially 10, Grumman Wildcat fighters were in Fleet Air Arm service, initially at Scapa Flow. These first US planes were not lend-lease, but had been intended for the French to equip their new carriers, and these and then a dozen Belgian contract Wildcats also undeliverable, became RAF fighter planes, as we bought them outright. There was a further contract and by mid-1941 the folding wing Wildcats, known to us as “Martlets,” began to serve on British carriers. But the first of the Grumman fighters — well thought of, if not as good as the Spitfire and Hurricane — were used as standard land-based fighters.

    I haven’t found any note of the effectiveness of the FAA Martlets in the Battle of Britain as yet.
