WW2 British Corp of Military Police Helmet Stencil MP Template
The Military Police first engaged in combat in 1882 at the Battle of Tel el-Kebir. Although technically two independent corps, these two effectively functioned as a single organisation. In 1926 they were fully amalgamated to form the Corps of Military Police (CMP). In recognition of their service in the Second World War, they became the Corps of Royal Military Police (RMP) on 28 November 1946 under Army Order 167.
