802 Squadron RAF and then Fleet Air Arm 1933-1939:
Formed on 3 April 1933 by amalgamating No's 408 and 409 (Fleet Fighter) Flights. The squadron was equipped with nine Nimrods and three Ospreys and served aboard HMS Glorious in the Mediterranean fleet. The squadron returned to the UK in 1934 when Glorious was refitted. In the meantime the squadron served aboard HMS Courageous, but rejoined Glorious in the Mediterranean in August 1935. Sea Gladiators arrived in May 1939 and the squadron was transferred to Admiralty control on 24 May 1939.
