    Milicja Obywatelska (Citizens' Militia or Civic Militia) was a state police institution in the People's Republic of Poland. It was created in 1944 by Soviet-sponsored Polish Committee of National Liberation, effectively replacing the pre-war police (Policja) force. In 1990 after the collapse of the communist regime it was transformed back into Policja.

    Here is a few bits i finally dug out of my wardrobe. I have a long way to go to gather a complete uniform and equipment set but i have seen a few more things i can get my hands on in my yearly visit to Poland.

    The first two pictures are of a Raportówka ( Report/documents case). I was told the baton was held in the two side loops but as i do not have one i cant check to see what type of baton fits.
