Not being an expert on the Spitfire; I will defer to somebody more knowledgeable about it and say you are probably right.

In 2008 the last known surviving E14Y1 Glens were found on the wreck of the Akibasan Maru
sunk Jan 30 1944 at Kwajalein island.
Article with underwater pictures here:
The E14Y1 'Glen' wrecks of the Akibansan Maru

BTW I can heartily recommend the book mentioned in the article.

One German aircraft used by Greece and Finland during WWII was the Dornier DO 22. Normally a floatplane, the Greeks removed the floats during the war with Italy and used it as an Army Cooperation aircraft.

Greek DO22






Finnish DO22

2 aircraft I believe have not been mentioned:

Cant Z.501 -

The single engine seaplane with turret on top of engine.
Italian, but this picture shows it in service with Romania.

BTW, does anyone know if Axis had something similar
to Lend Lease, or was all foreign equipment sold?


HP 42 -

The 4 engine biplane. Used prewar as a civilian airliner.
Taken over by the RAF and used as a transport.
