FW198 WW1 Military Policemen



Even in the midst of battle it was necessary to employ Military Policemen…Their duties were many and varied…From directing traffic to ensuring supplies of ammunition get to the front. The Military Police also collected enemy prisoners and any soldier attempting to escape or evade their duties in the front line. They enforced military discipline and also provided security for the ?top brass?. They were not alas, universally popular…
A pair of ?Red Caps? (on account of their red service cap covers) directing traffic and on the lookout for deserters, malingerers and others trying to evade their duties.
