Royal Marines Armoured Support Group

The current Royal Marines Armoured Support Group (RMASG) is an element of the Royal Marines that operates the Viking BvS 10 All Terrain Vehicle. It is the successor to the Royal Marines Armoured Support Company, and is, in effect, on permanent loan from operational command of 3 Commando Brigade to the Battle Group currently in Afghanistan. It is based at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton in Somerset.

In the Second World War, the RMASG was formed to give British and Commonwealth forces heavy fire support in the opening attacks of the Normandy Landings.

Famous quotes containing the words group, support and/or royal:

    The government of the United States at present is a foster-child of the special interests. It is not allowed to have a voice of its own. It is told at every move, “Don’t do that, You will interfere with our prosperity.” And when we ask: “where is our prosperity lodged?” a certain group of gentlemen say, “With us.”
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Because the young child feels with such intensity, he experiences sorrows that seem inconsolable and losses that feel unbearable. A precious toy gets broken or a good-bye cannot be endured. When this happens, words like “sad” or “disappointed” seem a travesty because they cannot possibly capture the enormity of the child’s loss. He needs a loving adult presence to support him in his pain but he does not want to be talked out of it.
    Alicia F. Lieberman (20th century)

    The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.
    Sigmund Freud (1856–1939)
