Figures have now been released for the final year that Culdrose and other military bases will carry out these tasks.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency will do this in future.

The figures for Culdrose make interesting reading.

20 call-outs rendering assistance:- viz.

2 military vessels
15 fishing vessels
3 Foreign-flagged vessels.

and

211 call-outs rendering assistance to Civilians/Holidaymakers/animals

Is there a link?

Would be interested to know if this was 2013 as it seemed a busy old year last year.

I went to Culdrose in 1965 , with the Volunteer Band from RNAS Yeovilton , for their Air Day ( ditto Brawdy in S Wales ) . The accomodation was DISGUSTING ; clapped-out old WW2 -style buildings with broken windows,cobwebs, cold showers etc. ; a local Cornish MP wrote in the newspapers that his pigs,on his pig farm,had better accomodation .David Penhaligon ?? Whereas the messes at HMS Goldcrest (Brawdy) in Lamb and Lister blocks was SUPERB ; only 6 to a mess, wooden furniture, large bed-spaces with mats ; I knew which I preferred !! (although Wales was "dry" on Sundays then !).

It wasn't DISGUSTING. It was CHARACTER BUILDING...;)

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think its changed a bit since then

Yes, I suppose it WAS "Character Building" ; at least it was no worse than Speckington Camp at Yeovilton was , 50 years ago ,when I lived there for 6 weeks when with HRH's "Royal Guard " .
