KK999 and KL100 - KL113, Lend-Lease requisition numbers BSC41203/41623. Were all built by Vought - Sikorsky at Stratford, Connecticut. These were the first true helicopters to be operated by the RAF. There has been some confusion as to whether KL110 or KK995 is the machine in the picture. KK999 was presumed scrapped in the 1950's, with some parts incorporated into KL110. KL110 was went to Bicester for refurbishment to static display condition between 28 Dec 67 and 6 February 1968, and given identity KK995 - the appearance of serial KK995 on some parts during restoration led to a case of mistaken identity.
