    Default Front Seam M1 - 385 Military Police Battalion

    I have had this forever. The chinstraps were replaced, either at the very end of the War or just post War, judging by the fact that the liner, which was with the shell when I bought it, is a Wartime vintage Capac, and the wear on the bales. The 385th MP Battalion was attached to the 3rd ID. It was activated in France in 11/44, originally for railway security. It was involved in the combat operations in the Rhineland Campaign, and was part of the occupation force after the War. This one is a rat, but I like it. Hope you all like it too. Cheers, Jim G.
