Default Unusual Military Police Badge

Hi All,

I've just got a couple of these unusual military police badges, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas.

They are the same size as a collar badge but in the style of the George V cap badge (as far as I know the collar badge didn't come to the RMP until they became RMP in 1946, there was no GvR version) and when you look at where the V should be it just isn't correct.

Obviously they aren't voided correctly and there are no fittings on the back either. I can't make out what they are made of, I don't think they are brass but don't know for sure.

Could these be something someone has been trying to make in the same way as a sand cast cap badge, maybe a prototype for something or something else altogether?

Michael

There is one shown in Colin Carnalls book 'Redcap Insignia and collectables' He just lists it as an oddment. The one in the book is cast brass with cast flat 'indian' lugs.

Thanks a lot Steve, I hadn't looked in that, I didn't think they'd be in there. I'll have a look.
