F1M floatplane lost 14 February 1942 Sumatra?

Hi guys

Can anyone confirm the loss of an F1M floatplane, believed from the seaplane tender Sagara Maru's detachment at Muntok (Sumatra) on 14 February 1942? One was claimed by a Hudson on that date.

The identity and fate of the floatplane's crew would be a bonus.

Cheers
Brian

Brian,


There's talk of an encounter with Hudsons on this website, but then on 16 Feb 1942...


See

http://www.combinedfleet.com/Sagara%20Maru_t.htm and scroll down to Feb 1942.


Regards,


Leendert

Brian,


On this website https://www.pacificwrecks.com/ships/maru/kamikawa.html a loss of a Pete is mentioned on 16 Feb 1942, but not sure if same incident. Crew rescued.
Here it says an intercept of Dutch B-10s...

Leendert
