I understand that roll rate was something crucial for WWII aircrafts. Unfortunately, finding information about it is incredibly difficult. I couldn't get any reliable data except for a very few planes. Could you please provide me some data or sources ?
Thanks for your help,

There is a test by the RAF comparing the roll rate of the Spitfire I to the Hurricane I, P-36 and P-40. Also one comparing the roll of the Spitfire I compared to the Bf-109E.
There is also a RAAF test of the Spitfire V compared to the Zero.
There was a German document floating around a few years ago for 109G lateral control.
Hawker did some Tempest roll-rate tests, again available at ww2aircraftperformance.com
