Under the Army 2020 review the Royal Military Police has been organised and restructured, introducing for the first time ever in the British Army’s long history a Military Police Brigade. This is a unique occasion, considering the current background of Forces reduction. 1 Military Police Brigade, which became operational on the 1 December 2014, reaches ‘Full Operational Capability’ on the 1 July 2015.
To mark this historic occasion BFPS, in partnership with Regimental Headquarters Royal Military Police, has produced a special commemorative cover, released on the 1 July 2015.
Included will be an A4 insert sheet with information about the new brigade flash and also a brief history of the Royal Military Police, the Military Provost Staff and the Military Provost Guard Service. The insert and covers are presented in a cellophane sleeve to create a high quality souvenir to mark the event.
The covers will be available in three versions as follows:
- Standard unsigned.
- Limited Edition – signed by the Provost Marshal(Army) & Commander 1 Military Police Brigade.
- Limited Edition – with a “RMP Central Benevolent Fund” cachet (available only from the RHQ RMP shop at www.rhqrmp.org or by email at email@example.com – Telephone 02392284651).
The standard and signed versions of the covers are also available by mail order by sending a cheque (payable to ‘BFPS CIC’) to BFPS, The Old Post Office, Links Place, Elie, Fife, KY9 1AX.
