This Battle was manufactured in 1940 as a pilot trainer in Stockport, England but was immediately transferred to the RCAF serving with No. 31 Service Flying School at Kingston, Ontario. In December 1942 it was converted to a turret-gunnery trainer at St. Jean, Quebec by installing a Bristol turret used on the Canadian-made Bolingbroke. It served briefly at No. 3 Bombing and Gunnery School in Macdonald, Manitoba before storage and is now part of the Reserve Collection at the Canada Aviation Museum.

The Battle has the ignominious accolade of being the least successful of the RAF types in service at the onset of WWII but was, nevertheless, flown with great valour by her crews. This aircraft served with 266 & then 98 Sqns when it crashed whilst on deployment in Iceland.

The Belgian army got 12 Battle light bombers in 1938. On 11 May 1940, six of them were shot down in a single attack against German-held bridges over the Albert Canal. The pilot of T-70, Capt André Glorie, was killed. His aircraft is represented by R3950 which served in the RAF and RCAF. Its restoration is unfortunately incomplete.
