united kingdom 847 squadron

Royal Marines


847NAS : 847 naval air squadron

1943 to present    




847 squadron
Formed in Jun 1943 as a torpedo bomber squadron of the Fleet Air Arm at RNAS Lee-on-Solent, it was absorbed into 810 Squadron while serving in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in Jun 1944. It reformed and disbanded again during the late 1950s, flying Gannets during the Cyprus emergencies.
Its long association with rotary wing aviation and the Royal Marines began in May 1963 when it reformed from part of 848 Squadron at RNAS Culdrose with Whirlwind HAS.7s as the third Commando squadron. After a brief work up it embarked B Flight on HMS Bulwark (R08), deploying to the Far East for trials before returning to the UK and disbanding again in Dec 1964, when the units role was taken over by 707 NAS.

Reformed at Sembawang on 14 Mar 1969 with 10 Wessex HU.5 from 848 Sq, when that unit split. Provided life-saving aid during major flood relief operations (see Operations, below). Stood down again in mid May 1971 and returned its airframes to 848 Sq.
The period between May 1971 and Aug 1995 was spent with the unit known as 3 Commando Brigade Air Squadron (3CBAS qv), although an 847 Squadron did reform at RNAS Culdrose briefly during the Falklands War, seeing service at Port San Carlos and later at Port Stanley before disbanding again in Sep 1982.
When it reformed on 1 Sep 1995 from 3CBAS at RNAS Yeovilton, there was a fundamental change in role (to tactical support of ground forces) and operating practice. The Royal Marines Commando still supplies the aircrew, but instead of the Royal Navy, the airframes now wear ROYAL MARINES titles, supplied from a pool of the Army Air Corps. Maintenance is performed by the Army's Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME).
The 6 unarmed Gazelle AH.1 (forming A Flight), were retired on 12 May 2005 in a ceremony at RNAS Yeovilton.
847 NAS deployed to Iraq from Oct 2007, returning to Yeovilton in Feb 2008. It deployed to Afghanistan for its 3rd tour between Sep 2008 and Mar 2009 with Lynx AH.7. The AH.7 was retired in Jul 2012 (ZD282 being its last example) for the more powerful Lynx AH.9A. The unit deployed for its 4th Afghanistan tour in Jan 2013, returning via RAF Brize Norton on 22 May.
By Sep 2013, 847 NAS had retired its Lynx and was working up with AW159 Wildcat AH.1



Just a point in your history 847 sqdn was formed in RNAS Yeovilton, 707 sqdn was split in half to form 847 and 848, experianced personnel from 845 joined the two sqdns to bolster the front line experiance.
