So in the same theme > 2 questions:

- for NCO MPs garrison caps in Airborne Divisions piping should be MP version (yellow-green) or maybe blue, same as infantry (I saw something like that and affraid that's uncorrect but I'm not sure)
- enlisted man service cap - used until 1941 but did MPs use them after 1941 ? Would it be correct to wear it with B-class uniform ?

Artur, the MP's cap piping (for the permanent MP's, that is) is the yellow-green piping.

Cheers,
Glen.

Isn't that MP lettering a bit big?
