Original shots of WW1 MPs are no so easy to find so was very pleased to get this one at a very low price.

 

Full Corporal of the Military Mounted Police, the MMP shoulder titles are clearly visible, and with the GVR cypher cap badge and police whistle chain also visible.

 

Love the turned up, waxed ends to the moustache !

Hi Gordon,

 

Great photo and a great moustache.

 

In the very old days they used pork-lard, later moustache-grease, and later again moustache-wax.

 

Thanks for showing.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan
