Default Royal Marine Cap Badge

Please Could you help me in trying to finish a chapter in my book. The Royal Marine Provost from No 35 Provost Company arrived in Singapore in September 1945 until 1946. I wish to put in an image of the correct Royal Marine cap badge worn at that time. The Naval Provost Marshall at that time was Lt Cdr Penforld. RN, assisted by Lt or Major F H Little RM. Thank you in advance. HW

Hi HW
You will be better off posting this in the Royal Navy section as it may get missed here.
Cheers,
Alex

Why would it be anything other than the normal RM cap badge? Or are you talking about Royal Marine Police? They wore a globe and Laurel in silver if I remember right.

All I am looking for is to show the correct ROYAL MARINE badge at the time as I am not so good on RM badges when I see so much on variations on these pages. This has nothing to do with the Royal Marine Police which was a pensioner force and only in the UK. The Provost I know would have been the standard RM badge but wanted to be correct so as not to be criticised by using the wrong image. Thank you.

By the way thank you Alex for your suggestion. Hope you are OK. I'm still plodding on with the book. Will be in touch. Harry.

Found an article By CAPT. FRANK COX, R.M. from the 1946 edition of "The Globe and Laurel" (The Journal of the Royal Marines).

"In my recent visit to Singapore I had opportunity of seeing the very good work which has been done by the 35 Royal Marine Provost Company.
Under the command of Major F. H. Little, R.M.,who has been made Provost Marshall of Malaya, and his assisting officers, Capt. L. Randall, R.M., Capt. J. Starrit, R.M., and Lieut, J. Cordeaux, R.M., this Provost Company has done valuable work in clearing up the crime which has resulted from the Japanese occupation."

Also found another titled "Royal Marine Provost" which includes a photo labeled 'RMP Patrol - Singapore 1945'.

It would be a standard brass, king's crown Royal Marine cap badge. Going by the drawing.
