Any one know the serials of the Merlin and the two Hawks that were at Bournemouth today, as I believe the Merlin came off one of the ship, and all were allocated to the Beach Assault today at 12.30 hours...

ZH861 was the Merlin in the Beach Assault/Anti-piracy demo on all days it went ahead. None of the ships had helos aboard anytime I went to look.
Cheers
