The Army Air Corps' Brunei-based No 7 Flight - which operates the Bell 212 AH1/AH3 - has been re-designated as No 667 Squadron. The change became official from August 1.
The unit is located at the British garrison at Medicina Lines in Seria, Brunei, where it has been present since November 1, 1994. It supports the resident infantry battalion from the Brigade of Gurkhas, as well as the Training Team Brunei, which runs jungle warfare training courses through the British Army Jungle Warfare Training School.
No 667 Squadron was originally formed at Middle Wallop in Hampshire on September 1, 1957. In its most recent incarnation, it operated from there as No 667 (Development and Trials) Squadron, operating Aérospatiale SA 341B Gazelle AH1s and Westland Lynx AH7s until it was disbanded at the end of 2000.
