Response to Military Police traffic control /odd holster
Steve: If he was wearing gauntlets and was on traffic control (TC) duty, most likely they were white. However, although I am not quite sure, I beleive some gauntlets issued were also brown (motorcyclists) but I am not positive about that. Most Military Police (MP) TC personnel wore white webbing (which began in North Africa) so as to be seen by armoured vehicle crews; casualties in TC companies were high. I am unsure about whether Canadian MPs wore whitened webbing (commonly called "Christmas Tree Order") as it was not worn as most beleive in Northwest Europe, except by TC Company personnel.
