Sikorsky HO3S-1 UP-21 and UP-28 

During the Korean War the US Navy helicopter utility squadron HU-1 "Pacific Fleet Angels" lent the Royal Austrlian Navy a Sikorsky HO3S-1 (Dragonfly) with crew to serve aboard HMAS Sydney as a rescue helicopter. Photographs indicate that two examples were used UP-21 (BuNo 122714 or 124350?) and UP-28, (BuNo ?) referred to as "Uncle Peter"
