Designed by Harold Bolas to meet Spec 16 /24 for a submarine carried aircraft. The two models produced were a designers nightmare to produce, but produce it he did. The results were satisfactory and the first model re-registered as N255 after suffering a crash in Gibraltar as N181, was embarked on the submarine H.M.S. M2 where it was lost after someone left the hangar doors open and all hands were lost at sea. The other Peto was purchased by one F C Allen, with the intention of civil use, however nothing came of it.
