Since their formation, MAMS team’s have been heavily involved in any Operation that have required British forces to be deployed. The other area that the Sqn has been heavily tasked in support of are disaster relief operations. The Sqn does not get much coverage in the press during these task, there are more ’glamorous’ units to report on. For example, during the Ethiopian famine relief, the press seemed to report the airdrops of grain by 47 AD RCT. However, UKMAMS moved far more grain in a longer time than the air drops achieved. It is more interesting to see air drops than men carrying sacks of grain.
And yet, without MAMS, it is difficult to see how an Operational deployment or Disaster relief could succeed or happen without undue delay.
