The Grebe and Gamecock were progressive developments of the line of fighters designed by Henry Folland, starting with the SE5 and –5A of WW1. They served in turn with the RAF throughout the 1920s, and export versions were still in service at the start of WW2, in Finland. Classic fighter biplanes, they were true pilot’s aeroplanes and delighted the crowds at many pre-war air displays. In the colourful markings of fighter squadrons of the time, they were flown by many later RAF aces and senior officers. This book describes the design, development and use of these aircraft and the many variants and prototypes derived from them. Profusely illustrated with many rare photos, this is the most comprehensive study of these designs yet published. The book includes scale plans, full-colour profiles, and detail photos, including many of the Gamecock replica being lovingly recreated by enthusiasts at Brockworth.
