Military Police, c.1900, Philippines

Recommended Posts

Here are a few young MP's in the Philippines, I'm guessing c.1900? Picture taken at Galatea Portrait Studio in Manila. One of them is Private J. Carpenter, HQ Co 2nd (?) Bat., 27th US Infantry- Stationed at Schofield barracks in Hawaii at some point. Pvt. Carpenter may have been from the Johnstown, Pennsylvania area.

Great photo! The 27th Inf. Regt. left the Philippines in 1904 and was deployed to Camp Sheridan, IL.

After service in Cuba, Texas, and again in the Philippines, the Regiment sailed to Vladivostok, Siberia,

in 1918, as part of the Allied Expeditionary Force. This photo would have been taken sometime during

their second deployment in the Philippines. I have been unable to find the exact dates for that second

deployment. My best guess would be between 1914 and 1918.
