    Thanks for asking, Aleksander. I wonder if anyone has any photos of soldiers wearing this badge in the field?

    Here is the photo of similar metal badge of finnish military police. Metal badge (sotilaspoliisi) was approved for use autumn 1944. Special MP units did wear metal badge before and you can see one here attached to left breast-pocket of staff-sergeant behind customs officials. Photo is taken in october 1944. Metal MP badge was used post-war until 1980´s. Hope this helps a pit.

    The triangle arm patch, Sotapoliisi, was used during both wars, Winter- and Continuating war. By decre number 23 (Asetus 23) from September 2 1944, the metal badges was intruduced.
    However the was ended on September the 4th. If this badge came to be used it was in the Lapland war only.

    In addition to the military police there was also a "Special Military Police" (Er.Spol.Os). They had different tasks like supervising railroad stations, train patrols and also controlling road traffic.

    The Finnish Military Police was closed down after the Lappland war. There was no military police until 1963 when a new MP Scholl started in Helsinki.

    No, that was not I. It was a police officer from Nurmijärvi who displayed parts of his uniform collection.

    I presume you are refering to badges issued to officers who attended courses given by Valtion Poliisikoulu/Government Police School?
    There was a large blue enameled badge of which I have enclosed a picture (hopefully). This badge was give to the best students only
    There were also a few other type of badges which were more commemorative.
