The 62nd Military Police Highway Patrol was disbanded in 1958. This is the second pattern brassard. The first design did not have the MP lettering. Probably one of the most desirable and hardest to find MP brassards.

Does anyone have any idea what this PM brassard may be? Possible WWII-era, possible Navy.

 

 

 

Provost Marshall. Probably Canadian or British and not US.

499th Field Artillery Bn. - I don't know why a field artillery battalion would have MPs?? The 499th was part of the 14th Armored Div.

The MPs would be part of the division.

This is a very unique MP brassard. The Military Police Corps wasn't established until September, 1941. I'm guessing this was

made sometime shortly after that date - possibly a prototype?
