Nice ones !!!

This one I think was made up for a civil disturbance mission in

It has temporary markings for the 501st MP's.

even though you cannot see it in normal light,

if you shine a black light on the front of the steel,

there is an MP logo under the green paint on the front.

Its more noticable in person but this is the best I can get for an image in black light.

Page, with this one it will be for the 32nd Military Police Company, a Separate Non Divisional unit first formed in 1967, it falls under the direct command of Headquarters Wisconsin National Guard. It though was probably the assets of the recently inactivated 32nd Infantry Division no doubt,(Inactivated in late 1967 and reduced to a Separate Infantry Brigade, the 32nd Infantry Brigade), here, the MP Company,  it just was inactivated and then reactivated and made separate.

That White one with the Training Establishment Decal is a real interesting one. I get hits for a 140th Military Police Company at Fort Gordon Georgia, Fort Gordon was the the Military Police Center and School in the 50s till moved to Fort McClellan in 1975. My guess is this liner was worn before the adoption of the Military Police Center and School Shoulder Patch, which was adopted around July 1960, thus lacking a shoulder path and thus a deal, this unit wore the This We'll Defend decal making the 140th Military Police Company, School Troops, you'll note the colors of the Band, Green and Yellow, and the Green MP on the front, Green and Yellow being the Military Police Branch Colors.

Said patch that came out in 1960, patches in decal form were as you'll see in this topic worn on the liners.

Found a few 60s-70s ones on the BAY today, these are up for sale, but lets show them here so they will not be forgotten, even if some one from the community buys one.
