Cornish Helicopter Returns From Afghanistan
1:55pm 30th July 2014
The last Cornish air squadron deployed to Afghanistan is back on home soil.
The 854 Sea King helicopter spent five years supporting troops on the ground with state of the art surveillance technology.
Their work has helped discover things like explosive materials, drug shipments and arms stashes, as well as save lives.
Now it is returning to the Culdrose air base in Helston.
As 854 departed, the Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said: "I am pleased to be able to pay tribute to the contribution made by the 854 Naval Air Squadron, which has played an essential role in supporting troops on the ground in Afghanistan."
The Royal Navy's First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir George Zambellas, said: "The contribution of the SKASaC force over five years has been magnificent, taking the fight to a determined enemy in a vastly unfamiliar environment. Your vital work saved many lives and proved the value of the aircraft over land."
