The Gloster Gladiator was the last British biplane fighter before the newer monoplane designs became dominant.  It was used both by the RAF and the Fleet Air Arm and was also exported to a number of other air forces. Though often outclassed by its foes during the early part of WWII, it was liked by its pilots for it's good handling and acquitted itself surprisingly well.

The Gladiator saw action in almost all theatres during WWII. It was in service with a number of air forces, some of them on the Axis side. Britain used it in France, Norway, Greece, Malta, the Middle East and Iraq (vs Gladiators of the Royal Iraqi Air Force) Other countries deploying the Gladiator included China, Finland, Norway, Belgium and Greece.
