The yellow thing in the trees was a Sea King HAR3a ZH540 c/s Sierra 125' from 22sqn 'B' flight based at Wattisham (not Valley) and flown by the female O/C of B flight.
I understand it was flying the RAF ensign from the winch cable.

This aircraft seems to spend most of it's time flying around our house when not on 'jollies' to London.  :)

As William is currently serving in the RAF I was disappointed not to see him in RAF uniform - however I have to admit that it isn't the most glamerous or ceremonial of uniform, so I thought the Sea King and Ensign was a brilliant master stroke!!!  :D

He had his Wings on a blue sash. And he changed uniform. When he drove off it was different, but I'm not sure what.

The uniform was of the Irish guards - he is honory Colonel of the Micks - the black undress version of which he was wearing when he drove off with PC. Coor just think the PC brigade are going to have to use different initals as someone with higher authority has nicked it. Hee Hee - opps sorry there's a thing for that - :lol:

The commentator in Trafalgar Square was describing the flown standard as that of "Wills" own, which I was quick to advise people around me that it was the Blue Ensign - as Pam wrote, brilliant, and Prince William was visibly impressed, perfect timing.
