This was the last (and largest) Short seaplane to enter service during WW1. It was named after the h.p of the engine, but while the original had an h.p of 310, subsequent aircaft were engined with the 320 h.p Sunbeam Cossack. Other references (Thetford: British Naval Aircraft since 1912) list it as the Short 320.
