Were there not a load of Wessii aboard the Atlantic Conveyor aswell as the Chinooks? There was also the Navy Sea King which went down with the SAS troops (and an RAF guy) aboard.

I was there yesterday and it was a tremendous event which was well organised, well executed and had the right tone. It was humbling to chat to the veterans and to see them meeting old mates they'd not seen for many years. When the groups on Birdcage Walk were called forward to take up positions before marching on to Horseguards, they all ambled forward. Not so the RAF contingent, who marched to the spontaneous applause of the crowd, damn impressive sight guys and gals, well done.

Finally, I thought that 29 Sqn deployed to Ascension with F.4s, hence their inclusion?
