      and are they better looking than the

      PA's we have in the Army

      I suppose they cant be worse looking -big smile-
      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
      The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
      The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

        Do they have their own version of a warrant card?

          The AC MPs are a recent addition, they used to be Army MPs on attachment.

            I would be interested in understanding what, if anything, is different between the Air Corps Police and the Army MP in terms of uniform and command. RAF Police wear a white hat and are know as snowdrops. They also wear an RAFP armband in RAF blue uniform and not MP.

            The RAF Police is a completely separate organisation from the Royal Military Police of the Army with its own Provost Marshal reporting into the air force chain of command.

            Where could I find a photo of Air Corps Police

                Many thanks for the welcome. I have a keen interest in Irish military history.

                  The armband is only now worn on the dress No 1's. They used to wear the No 2 armband years ago only becuase they had black rain coats with no markings. :wink:

                    Well, in DPM dress, the only differences in uniform are:

                    1. Rank markings (Air Corps specific)

                    - see www.bailerweb.com for details on these...

                    2. Air Corps badge appropriate to rank on the red beret
                    - officers have a different pattern badge to enlisted ranks

                    Have never seen an Air Corps MP in dress uniform.

                    Would imagine it's Air Corps uniform with red band on peak cap, at least this is
                    how the Naval Servive MPs look
                    The MP brassard is common across all 3 services

                    In the Defence Forces, the CO of the Bde MP Coy is an APM.

                    I imagine that the same applies to the CO of the Air Corps MP Sqn (?)

                          Yes there are not Assistant Provost Marshals (APMs) in the AC & NS. There is a thread on the board about it somewhere.

                            i think truck driver hit the nail on he head! AFAIK sd no.1 is the same as the rest of the air corps except for the red band on the peaker. Not sure if there is an air corps MP officer, ive never saw one any way!
