Reorganisation of the RAF following the Strategic Defence & Security Review has signalled the eventual end of RAF Search & Rescue, for which it has had responsibility since 1941. The Department of Transport is gearing up to take over the task from the RAF, the Royal Navy and the Coast Guard, and the Sea King is due for retirement from the RAF in 2017. Meanwhile, RAF Valley remains the SAR Force HQ as well as the base of ‘C’ Flight, 22 Sqn and the Sea King Operational Conversion Unit, 203 (Reserve) Sqn.
