Scarce Royal Marine Police ( RMP ) White Metal Cap Badge
Die struck white metal cap badge (NOT a brass collar badge which has been chromed) with two original long loops to reverse (some minor bending from service wear). Worn by the RM police without a crown above. Some polishing to high points otherwise in very good condition.
The Royal Marines Police, formed in 1923, provided security and maintained discipline in Naval Dockyard areas. Recruitment was direct from serving or former Royal Marines. The Royal Marines Police was disbanded in 1949 with the advent of the Admiralty Constabulary. The cap badge consisted of the usual wreathed globe of the Royal Marines, but without the crown at the top and the whole was stamped from white metal rather than having the usual gilt finish.
See RMP shoulder titles separately listed.

A scarce brass 3 part glengarry badge with the correct lug configuration on the Bugle and wreath each with 2 loops and centre globe 1 loop to reverse. In very good condition.
