Recently, APT(N) has been an RFA with an RN Flight, some RM for 'precision shooting' and a USCG detachment doing the dull boarding and searching.

Like the man above says, Counter Narcotics is a whole ship commitment .

We used to have (back when I was in!) a USCG detachment on board when we did drugs patrols in the Windies so that we moved from a military role to a police role when going for an intercept.
This included dropping the white ensign and flying the USCG flag therefore nominally becoming a USCG asset.

Looks like blame avoidance, fly a septic flag, so it's their fault when it all goes pare shaped?

I’ve seen the ensigns of the RIBS changed to reflect who is ‘coming at ya’, NEVER the Ensign of the Warship or Auxiliary hosting.
