UK RAF begin transferring Merlin helicopters to RN

The United Kingdom's (UK's) Fleet Air Arm's 846 Naval Air Squadron (NAS) was stood up at RAF Benson on 30 September with the AgustaWestland AW101 Merlin, while the Royal Air Force's (RAF's) 78 Squadron was disbanded.
As part of the UK's 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review, the Merlin utility helicopters are migrating from the RAF's Support Helicopter Force to the Royal Navy's (RN's) Fleet Air Arm's Commando Helicopter Force.
