Disbanded sqns?

Hi all, just vaguely curious as wiki and MOD website not too clear...

Is 671 still the OCU for Gazelle and Bell-212 at Middle Wallop?
Is 672 disbanded again, or did they get Wildcats at Yeovilton?
Is 673 disbanded now if 653 is the Apache OCU at Wattisham?

Many thanks!

671 and 673 are still at Wallop:

As far as I know 672 disbanded with 9 Regt in 2016.
 
Thanks.

According to the DHFS wiki page (and the MOD page) 9 Regt has reformed at Shawbury with 670 and 60 Sqn RAF. Alongside some weird monster called 2 Maritime Air Wing (660 and 705 for BFT and 202 SARTU Sqn).

Does that mean 673 and 653 are both Apache OCUs?

From the latest AAC Journal 9 Regt at Shawbury has 660 and 670 Sqns. No mention of 2 Maritime Air Wing.

The RAF Shawbury site has no mention of the Air Wing or 670 Sqn.

Does that mean 673 and 653 are both Apache OCUs?
Yes. 673 is at Wallop and 653 is at Wattisham, listed in the Journal under the Attack Helicopter Force, but separate to 3 and 4 Regts.
