Below is her history, extracted from the RAF records at Kew. There is a lot of day to day mundane things, for example gunnery practice and maintenance. There are records to show she went out on a "crash" call, ie to rescue someone. Her and her sister ships rescued over 13,600 allied personel, which shows the vital work she did and these rescues can be seen in the records.

However the thought provocing side of this is the amount of times they went out and searched for many hours only to return home without finding anyone.
