This is a bit of a surprise.

All part of the export drive. Latvia and Finland bought the type, both countries used the swastika as their national emblem. The Bulldog was a successful between the wars fighter, made famous by being the type crashed by Douglas Bader which resulted in his loosing both legs. His subsequent career, particularly his part in the Battle of Britain is well documented.

Not so sure about the Latvian Air Force, the swastika is clearly visible
