10 RAF Gladiators. They would fit in the hanger deck, which was not true of the 7 RAF Hurricanes. However, a 7 aircraft deck park should have been manageable. She had only 6 FAA Sea Gladiators and a single Swordfish squadron on board, so the hanger would not have been full. She was preparing Swordfish for launch in forward hanger when first hit, so it was definitely possible to conduct Swordfish operations.
