Royal Montmarian Guard
The Badge of the Royal Montmarian Guard depicts a castle tower, secured by a heavy gate with the RMG initials beneath in gold. The Royal Standard flies atop the castle, representing loyalty and security for the Monarch, with the insignia defaced by the Montmarian Crown.
With a history reaching back to the 1500s, the Royal Montmarian Guard has been responsible for the protection of Montmaray's leaders for centuries. Their mission, with the Accession of Montmaray as a province of New Hayesalia, has shifted to be a gendarmerie force responsible for the protection of New Hayesalia's leaders, foreign dignitaries, and of course the Montmarian Monarch.
The organisation is regarded among the best of close personal protection agencies, with no Montmarian Monarch ever killed under their protection.
Operating under the general guide of the New Hayesalian Army and alongside the New Hayesalian National Police, this independent branch is small and remains highly ceremonial - but for it's masterful corps protecting New Hayesalia's leaders and, by extension, it's democracy and constitutional monarch.
The Royal Montmarian Guard's uniform is worn as part of daily duties. The uniform is a black colour with red piping, worn with a bicorne with the RMG Crest on a red, white and black ruffle. Rank insignia is black for enlisted members, red for warrant officers, and gold for officers.
Class 1 Uniform, seen to the left, is historic and worn for ceremonial and important occasions, and on duty for a number of senior RMG members. Class 2 uniform removes the swords and gloves.
There are differences between the male and female versions of the uniform. While females wear skirts, men wear long trousers which cover the tall boots. Furthermore, the open collared female coat is a closed, standing collar on the male coat.
Crewmembers of the Royal Yachts wear identical uniforms, however the black of the uniform is replaced with white fabric.
Members of the RMG's ceremonial units most often wear ceremonial uniforms, including full Class 1. Members of the protection units of the RMG typically wear either Wraith working uniforms or plain clothes with an RMG lapel pin.
Where the wear of bicornes would be clumsy or inappropriate, the RMG Beret can be worn. Unless otherwise entitled, members of the RMG wear a Black Beret with a red leather band, with the crest of the RMG on a red diamond flash - this distinguishes it from the Special Forces Legion's beret.
Members of the Special Forces Legion, after attaining Commando qualification, wear the Black Beret with the RMG Crest without red devices - though specific units wear their unit insignia (such as BASTION or the CBRN Response Unit.)
As is standard across the Military, Military Police wear Scarlet Berets with the Army Crest, and members of the Amalgamation Guard wear Teal Berets with the Coat of Arms insignia. In place of Berets for this task, the leather top of the bicornes are dyed scarlet or teal for this task.
