Evening all,

I am looking at putting together a MP kit bag, I am new to the US side of things and would be greatful if some one can help me with a kit list for my MP impression.

Thanks in advance

Sam

Hi Sam

Pops has contacted you, he can give you the rundown of what is the basics needed to represent both a Combat MP and a more formal duty MP. He has years of experience and eager to help.

Kind regards

Lee

Here is a kit list for you:

Price? How much have you got already? If you're starting from scratch it'll cost a bit. Say about 300 plus weapons?

Hope this helps.

At the minute I am starting from scratch so will need to beg and borrow kit for now until I've built up my own kit.

So basic kit to get me started would be :
M1 Helmet
M1941 Jacket
Enlisted Wool Shirt
Tan Wool Necktie
Wool Field Trousers

and some sort of footware........

That still cheaper than protraying a Birtish redcap :lol:

Hi Sam

Pops told me you have been in contact this year and are up for some Military Police work. He is the best person to give you a run down of the basics kit needed and costings. First off forget the white webbing and helmet, go for a more combat / field look, if deploying with us it will get more use than the parade dress, although that can be looked at in the fulness of time and will have its use.

Regards

Lee
