How long has the HMBF been going Phil?
It is many years since I was in the R.N. and don't remember anything like this, just the Coast Guard.
3 years ago.

Life is a bit confusing with government departments converting 'departments' into 'agencies' and then back. I suppose it keeps the painters and stationery designers in business. HM Customs hived off the Border Agency then took it back in-house as the Border Force. The most recent Wiki... on this class can be found at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UKBF_42m_Customs_Cutter
The Coastguard seems more about search & rescue, now that the armed forces no longer play the major role in that.
