Royal N Wessex HAS.1 helicopter XM833 fuselage skin square

XM833 (c/n WA.014) was one out of a first production batch of forty Wessex HAS.1 helicopters built for the Royal Navy by Westland Aircraft Ltd at Yeovil against Contract 6/Aircraft/15487. It initially joined 700(H) Sqn (Intensive Flying Training Unit) at Culdrose before being converted to a HAS.3 variant by October 1967. XM833 went on to serve with 819, 814, 820 and 737Sqn's before being placed in storage at Wroughton. It was acquired by the Second World War Aircraft Preservation Society (SWWAPS) who displayed the helicopter at its Lasham location. NEAM bought it in Spring 2010 when the SWWAPS collection was dissolved following the sad death of its founder Bob Coles. It is currently being restored for display at South Wales Air Museum
