Camouflage & Markings – Gloster Grebe
The Grebe was the RAF’s first new fighter to enter service in the UK after World War I. At first one flight of 111 Squadron was equipped with them at Duxford alongside their Snipes and Siskins from October 1923. Five other squadrons were then fully equipped with them and they remained in service until 1929. They were all painted silver and had the coloured squadron markings on the fuselage which were repeated across the top wing between the roundels. Beautiful looking aeroplanes!
