    As an aside, I was on Wessex from 1986 to 1991 and the term cab was only used to describe SH aircraft, as in my first post. I never heard it used on 22 Sqn.

    Walter would be used in the singular, more than one Wessex and you would use the term Wessii which is a very old way of describing plural units from the RFC usage of Albatrii (possibly from schoolboy Latin). I never heard anyone use Wessexes or the like.

    A Sea King was just a Sea King although their personnel were known as Queenies, a Chinook was a Wokka or a Portaloo and a Puma was just a French thing with rotors that went the wrong way round.

    Hope thats cleared that up..........

      Glad that Tramatoa also agrees with 'Walter' and I too agree with 'Wessii'.

      To confuse things further, at Benson, "Queenies" was anyone on TQF.
