    Default MP liner

    MP liner that i have posted on here was gift from a very good mate. dated 68. i also have found that the unit was in vietnam in the 60s. i also have found a image of mr wright of the 615th but no wearing this liner, could just be a coincident. as i have found that a lot of these liners have been faked over the years. i would just like to ask if you guys think that this liner ticks all the boxs. im just about shore my self that the liner is right. it did come with a front seam swivel bale helmet . the shell has a smoth paint finish no cork or sand. thanks mark.

    Thank you Ranger, however it is just one of those things I picked up along the way, and as I do not collect them, I will not restore it, perhaps I will someone that wants it, and they can do it.

    Take Care

    First liner is 18th MP Brigade arrived in Vietnam 1966 Departed 1973 all my officers and sgts were in this unit it was stationed at Long Binh called LBJ as a joke as there was a big stockade there. Numbers on side are company and can be battalion also I had a similar one with the 208th company on the side. Nice liner looks dated 67 that was a year after they arrived in LBJ Vietnam I had a first sgt that was one of the first go in. Patch was described as the double ax when I was in MP Corp early 70's nice piece. timothy

    That second one looks like the Crysler division I can't remember the number to it has the 109th company or battalion on the side must have been attached to Crysler Div I had a green painted liner with MP decals and some were Black we used black for correctional duty at stockades. Sometimes for inspection we would polish them with floor wax to make them shine. Nice liners. I think no 2 may be 5th Corp instead of division refered to as the Crysler DIv due to patch but is a Corp it was in WW2 I think . timothy
