Default Military Police armband.

Is there any significance in the colours used in this armband? Yellow appears to be an unusual colour for the lettering?

The armband itself is unfinished but does appear to have some age to it.

It may be offered for sale at some point.

Thank you. That is very interesting but it seems strange that it should turn up in Shropshire via Herefordshire.
