History[edit | edit source]

Delivered to SeenotGruppe 81 as P7+MN. In May 1945 the aircraft still served with SeenotGruppe 81 and surrendered at Guldborg in Denmark. In June 18th 1945 was part of the evacuation of Guldborg to Schleswig. It was given Air Minstry Number AM114 and was ferried from Schleswig-See to Felixtowe on 6 December 1945. Allocated RAF serial number VN865 on 20 December 1945, the aircraft joined the Marine Experimental Establishment for 'type trials' on 27 December,[1] (alongside VN870, which was used for tests of it's air-sea rescue equipment.)[2]

On 1 June 1946 it was awaiting disposal because of the lack of resources to maintain the aircraft. Still present at Felixtowe in April 1947, it was collected by J. Dale & Co on 14 November 1947 for reduction to scrap.[1]
