Wessex XM328 was built at Yeovil in 1959 as a pre-production HAS.1 anti-submarine warfare helicopter for the Royal Navy. Between 1965 and 1968 forty-three of the original Wessex HAS.1 variants including XM328 were upgraded to Mk.3 specification. From 1970 it was stationed at RNAS Portland in Dorset with 737 Naval Air Squadron where it was assigned to operate from several of the County Class guided missile destroyers. In their shipborne anti-submarine role the HAS.3s could carry two homing torpedoes or four depth charges in addition to their dipping sonar. They could also be fitted with a doormounted machine gun.
