Military Aid to the Civil Authorities
The MOD approach to all military operations in the UK is termed United Kingdom Operations (UK Ops). It comprises the Armed Forces’ response to a wide range of contingencies and emergencies during peace, periods of tension and crisis, and war.
MACA has three main subsets, which are:
- MAGD Military Aid to Government Departments: This probably included helping civil servants find the latest set of data they have lost, moving their comfy chairs from plush office to plush office without scratching the marble floors or cleaning up after John Prescott.
- MACP Military Aid to the Civil Power
- MACC Military Aid to the Civil Community
