Gliders were used exclusively during the Second World War to land a cumbersome glider in any ware clear of obstacles. Although most landings were quick and without many problems, some went tits-up; twenty men down like Roger Moore.

The gliders housed pilots with Nelson sized balls. Some, if not, all were issued Enfield, Webly or Browning HP side arms to develop some usefullness when they land.
