719th Military Police Bn c early 40's
« on: November 23, 2015, 11:24:23 pm »
Here's a Pocket patch for 719th MP Bn early 40's.

Would any one have more info/history  as I can't trace its lineage or its redesignation.

Thanks to DK for the ID.

We have pubbed a series of articles on the MP Bns, written by Mike O'laughlin. Try our TP search feature and see if there are any other articles about the bn.

Thanks Dave

Activated March 1942 NY POE and disbanded December 1943 Staten Island. A very short lived unit.

Phill,
  That is a great patch.  I have never seen one before.  I love the symbolism in the design.  If you ever run across another in New Zealand keep us in mind.
