Im not too sure on the details but I don't think the Mp's carried a baton in the field. I could be wrong but I only carry a baton as apart of my whites (class a's).

Looking at a couple of photos. There are a couple of field mp's carrying them. But they are wearing the sam brown leather belt which does look nice!

Quoting from another forum post:

"The "Club, Policeman, M-1944" (or M-1943) was not carried in a holder in combat dress, more usually tucked into the pistol belt, or sometimes stored in the Jacket. The leather holder only appeared post? war.

If leather is your thing, The Enlisted Mans Leather Belt (Garrison), and Leather Strap, Shoulder, Military Police, with optional Pocket Magazine, Double, Leather and Pouch First Aid Packet, Leather makes for a full kit. but you got more chance of finding rocking horse s**t.

Hope this helps

Karoshi "

In sum I should avoid such holders ;) I'm still looking for MP baton but only at Paratrooper.fr I found it so soon I'm going to buy it, except somebody has baton/club for sale.

Hope in couple months I can show you my MP impression :)

Thank you guys for your help.

Artur

I wouldnt get it imported. I asked that question a few months ago. Customs will probably seize it.

No, as stated a post war thing. They were never issued or used.

Leather loop just tucked under pistol belt or looped under belt and round handle..or possibly hooked to sam brown belt hook on back of an early 4 pocket jacket

regards

Yeah I only use a baton holder because buggaluggs over here cut the string too short :P I've got that British made webbing. The cross strap and frog is original and Lloyd is correct, it cost me a fourtune for what it is! The belt I had to make myself out of a P08 webbing strap and brass buckle then blanco'd.
