Merlin with Red Side Flashes

Just seen a Merlin over Fowey with what appears to be a red stripe down the Right hand side of the rear cab door. Couldn't be sure but it did look like the "Rescue" flash.
Nothing in the news about the Seakings being superceeded, anyone any ideas.

Coastguard have discontinued Sea King now, not being a WAFU type person I have no idea what they call the new type mcaaw139small.jpg
arent they thinking about privatising the SAR? heard it nearly went ahead but got stopped at the last minute?
What has the SAR contract to do with an Algerian Merlin?

And yes, the SAR contract has been cancelled due to scandal in the consortium that was buying the contract.
