    Default Felt Banner: 803 M.P. BN

    Hi Guys,

    Would like to share this that I got today.

    It's a very nice and large felt made banner of 803rd Military Police Battalion, Company D.

    I've never seen a felt made banner this huge that is WWII related.

    Any comments and extra info are welcome.

    Thank you and regards,
    Taka

    Maybe for when they were deactivated, for the company picture.

    Any chance that this could have been made for a post-war reunion? I notice that the eyelets - presumably brass? - are still very bright.

    Thank you for the comments, Gentlemen.

    I agree that it is a post war made example, but a really nice one!

    Any information on the Cmpany D because I couldn't find any. Did they participate any battle?

    Cheers!
