The 1st New Zealand Special Air Service Group in their very own mashup. These guys put in some strong work.
The 1st New Zealand Special Air Service Group was formed on July 7th, 1955. 8 months later, in November of 1955, the NZSAS was hooking and jabbing next to the British SAS in the jungles of Malaya fighting communist insurgents.
Since it’s inception, the group has been involved in the following conflicts: Malayan Emergency, Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation, Vietnam War, Operation Desert Thunder, INTERFET, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Anaconda.
