    According to Angolia/Schlicht, initially this uniform was to be worn by all members of assault gun units (not just the actual vehicle crews). Later, this was extended to crews of self-propelled artillery pieces and armored trains, and finally, in the late war period, it was seen worn by members of other types of units as well, such as Panzer Grenadiers or the Brandenburg paratroop battalion. Thus, I wouldn't rule out it being worn by military policemen.

    In any case, I think insignia should only ever be removed from a uniform if one can be absolutely certain that they are not original to the piece. This is not the case here, so I agree with the others: Leave the wrapper as it is.

    Allow me one observation, though: This really shouldn't be in the German Police forum. I suggest it be moved to the Heer/Marine/Luftwaffe forum (with the parallel thread on the piece deleted there). It's a military uniform and really has nothing to do with the civilian Ordnungspolizei.
    I agree. Thread moved. I agree that you should leave it as is.
