Pictured- Royal Marine Aircrewman- Corporal Damian ‘Barnsey’ Barnes is winched from the lifeboat, as 771 Naval Air Squadron conducts a night time winching exercise with the class D St. Agnes R.N.L.I. Lifeboat.

For nearly half a century, 771 Naval Air Squadron – known as the Ace of Clubs – has lived up to its motto non nobis solum – ‘not unto us alone’, or in 21st-Century speak, 'for the greater good'. The Sea Kings are scrambled at least 200 times a year, and the figure is rising. 771’s helicopters, which feature the squadron’s unofficial Ace of Clubs logo, provide search and rescue cover for the Western Approaches: that’s the Cornish peninsula, the Isles of Scilly and the Atlantic/Channel to a distance of 200 nautical miles. That can mean mariners in distress or holidaymakers, walkers, climbers, divers and surfers in difficulty around the Cornish coast. The helicopters are also called upon to ferry patients/injured people to hospital in the West Country. One of the SAR crews & helicopters are at 15 minutes’ notice to fly by day and 45 minutes by night, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with a second aircraft on the Culdrose tarmac ready to join it in the skies should the emergency demand.
