Default Military Police anodised trade badge

Hi Gents,
This appears a silver anodised M.P trade badge. I wondered if this may be a badge worn on a brassard by Military Police or may not be military at all?

The dimensions of the badge are 23mm tall x 44mm wide any information would be greatly appreciated.
Many Thanks
Colin

Hi Simon,
Quite possible, but usually Met Police stuff is generally chromed?
Thanks
Colin

I would think that the RMP only wore cloth badges except for the cap & collar.
So I would say not RMP.

Thats a good shout Mike.
Do any anodised Australian badges come with lugs? Usually pin and clasp aren't they?

Unusual find Colin.
