Kongelige Danske Marine
The Søværnets Helikopter Tjeneste (naval helicopter service) was formed at Vaerlose in 1977 from the Naval Flight of the Air Force Esk.722. It was originally to become Esk.728 but recognition of the importance of the maritime concept led to the Service creation, against a climate of consolidation in the Danish forces.

In Jan 2004 the Service became a squadron in its own right and moved to Karup, to operate helicopters from the maritime assets of the Danish combined forces. It transferred back to the RDAF as Esk.723 on 1 Jan 2011.
