Other Ranks KC GVIR 1936-1952. Cast brass with slider.

 

This is the earliest type made. Presumed from overseas detachments where supplies of the new badge were unavailable. Cast using the GVR badge as a master, and modifying the numeral V to VI. Note position of the numeral in the centre of the monogram as opposed to upper part of the monogram on the official GVIR pattern.

Absolutely NOT a fantasy, though the bi-metal type with white metal scrolls never existed. Listed as a Forage Cap badge in KIipling & King and confirmed by Lt/Col Jeremy  Green who is now the Director of the Royal Military Police Museum as believed having been worn briefly and unofficially by the MFP Detachment at Shorncliffe prior to 1904.
