Thanks Toby and Gurkha,
so far i know the MHS Bulletin is only available for MHS-members and no way to buy a copy.
I understand - Mr. Brayley also stated that this helmet plate with VR cipher was not worn by the Military Police.

Thanks for help and informations, much appreciated,
kind regards
Markus

One further error can be seen in the photo of an actual MFP tunic that I posted showing sergeant stripes with red backing. They were in fact dark blue backing as shown in Ernest Ibbotson’s artwork. It was the Military Provost Staff (formerly Military Prisons Staff) that had red backing to their stripes at that time. The stripes had been retrospectively (and erroneously) added to the tunic for a reenactment in more recent decades.
