OT- Austers over Somerset, UK?

Saw three aircraft arrive at Westland Helicopters in Yeovil, Somerset at
around 3pm today, they must have fueled quickly as they were off again
within about 30 mins. They looked like Army Air Corps Austers to me(no
expert!) in WW2 brown and green, anyone know what they were up to?
Cheers,
Troffa

I just checked out the Army Air Corps website :-

and the small photo of their Historic Aircraft Flight shows that they have an Auster and a Beaver.
Maybe that was what you saw - in company with a third machine ??
Maybe a privately owned Auster - or maybe all 3 were privately owned??
