What colour scheme was used for the Gladiators in Malta? I've heard that there were both RAF and FAA aircraft used, and that their colour schemes differed. Any ideas?

Well you kind of answer your won question: the FAA Sea Gladiators would have had the gray and olive scheme. Here's a picture of the fuselage of one: link and a color drawing: link

The RAF flew some of the FAA Gladiators -- the semi-apocryphal Faith, Hope and Charity, and they had some Hurricanes as well.

I believe all the Maltese Gladiators were Sea Gladiators that had the FAA colour schemes.
