A new annual trophy for the best safety record of a

Fleet Air Arm squadron has been won by 725 Squadron which flies

Wessex anti-submarine helicopters.

The trophy, awarded by the Grumman Aircraft Corporation,

has been named the McNicoll trophy after Vice Admiral Sir Alan

McNicoll who retired as Chief of Naval Staff in March last year.

No. 851 Squadron (Tracker training) was commended for

the record it achieved during the four months it had been in

commission.
