ZH827 Merlin HM2 visited NAS Norfolk on 18th Sept, accompanied by ZJ120/D Merlin HC4 Grey colour scheme and ZZ530 Wildcat HMA2.

HM2 ZH827 had HMS Queen Elizabeth on the nose, so that's one of 'em.
Wildcat ZZ530 had what looks like RFA Tideforce on the under-nose radar dustbin thingy.
I can't see any ship names on ZJ120.

In your squadron numbers, the "R" (for "Reserve") was dropped ages ago as far as I know.

Also, the dot between Role Designation and Mark number is also superfluous, unless you include the abbreviated word Mark (Mk.), as that is what the dot would be referring to.

So, HC Mark 4 is the longhand version.
Or, abbreviated to HC Mk. 4
But in reality HC4
