Good evening all.
Since finding out my jeep was MP jeep, I've been working on an MP impression to go with it. I'm not a die-hard reenactor, just a vehicle owner who likes to look the part and do things properly, so im hoping you guys who are a lot more knowledgeable than me can let me know what you think.

I have a field uniform sorted, just not 100% sure on the class A yet.
I'm trying to portray an MP in class A uniform, but on duty.
So far I have -
Service boots
Tan gaitors
Enlisted man's trousers shirt and tie
Class A jacket with all correct badges, 1st inf. Patch, ssgt stripes, combat infantyman badge, whistle

White helmet liner or garrison hat
Tan pistol belt, mag pouch, first aid pouch
Brown holster

Can anyone think of anything I'm missing or is completely wrong?

I'm no expert on WWII MP uniforms, but I think you'll be wanting white belt, gaiters etc. if wearing the class A uniform.

Here is a photo of a wartime MP in class As and white gear (borrowed from this blog: http://www.jasetaro.com/blog/tag/j-arthur-setaro/)
