Dear Mr Kinsey,
Your email dated 27 October 2018 is considered to be a request for information under the
Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000. You requested the following information:
I have acquired the snatch defender 110 reg 27KK26 and IV DRS208 Do you have
any service information please
A search across the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has now been completed, and I can confirm
that the department holds information relevant to your request, which is attached.
Section 16(1) of the FOI Act requires public authorities to provide advice and assistance to
requesters, so far as it is reasonable to do so. You may wish to note that the department has
undertaken a routine review of the MERLIN archive and the final version of this has since
been released as part of a previous FOI request, which can be accessed at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/foi-responses-published-by-mod-week-
If you have any further requests, you may wish to check whether
the information is already published.
You should also note that when the MERLIN database was archived into its current format
some data may have been lost or corrupted. You should, therefore, be cautious that some
of the data may be inaccurate.
If you have any queries regarding the content of this letter, please contact this office in the first
instance. If you wish to complain about the handling of your request, or the content of this
response, you can request an independent internal review by contacting the Information
Rights Compliance team, Ground Floor, MOD Main Building, Whitehall, SW1A 2HB (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org)
. Please note that any request for an internal review should be
made within 40 working days of the date of this response.
If you remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you may raise your complaint directly to
the Information Commissioner under the provisions of Section 50 of the Freedom of
Information Act. Please note that the Information Commissioner will not normally investigate
your case until the MOD internal review process has been completed. The Information
Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF. Further details of the role and powers of the Information
Commissioner can be found on the Commissioner's website at https://ico.org.uk/.
