G-EAVE  Supermarine Amphibian                                    (c/n  1152)


                                        During the between the wars period (1919 -1939), most U.K. manufacturers appear to have
                                        produced many one-offs. Supermarine were no exception.   The above aircraft participated in
                                        the 1920 Air Ministry trials at Martlesham Heath.   It was written off in October 1920, but
                                        whether that was during the actual trials or not I am not sure. In any event, this surely must have
                                        been one of the first truly successful amphibians?
