Default Royal Military Police Makers

Hi All,

When I first started collecting I always said I just wanted one of each badge in my chosen fields but now I have managed to get most of the RMP badges I want, I find myself asking the question I swore I wasn't interested in.

Can anyone tell me what makers produce the RMP anodised cap badge so I can try and get one of each?

I have a few with Firmin, London on already.

I have seen on eBay examples with JR Gaunt, Dowler and the London Badge and Button Company. Is that all of them or does anyone know of any others?

Thanks very much for helping me fall down the rabbit hole,

Michael

Thanks Jerry (I think),

I had no idea there were that many, I was hoping the 4 I'd spotted would be about it.

This could get messy 😁

I hadn't even thought of them.

I have an anodized one, a brass one and a couple of the dodgy white metal ones
