    Im trying to put together a WW2 British Army MP uniform.
    I found the attached picture and was wondering if it is an accurate depiction.
    I believe that the CMP on the top of the sleeve is Corps of Military Police and that this was worn on both sleeves.
    The MP arm sleeve I believe was only worn on one arm. Is that correct?
    Finally, does anyone know What the circle sleeve insignia (black inside and red outside) is?
    Thanks for your help.

    Not the world's greatest picture

    Yes, the C.M.P. badge stands for Corps of Military Police, and was worn on both sleeves (it's actually called a 'shoulder designation'). You are also correct about the M.P. armlet, this was worn on one sleeve only.

    The red ring badge is the formation sign for British Troops Berlin, that is, the occupation force. This one is the early pattern, the later version had BERLIN written in red letters above it.

    The helmet section is probably not the best place to get an answer, but I think the badge is for the Berlin garrison post war.

    The patch is indeed for Berlin.
