Re: British Bobbys & NYPD

The table soccer game Subbuteo had an accessories set featuring several Policemen- including one mounted and Irregular Miniatures do some in white metal as part of their 'Riot' range.

Hi Mike

Technically 1930s as part of their VBCW range but these Irregular Miniatures give the flavour of British police of an earlier era. Really they need longer tunics. http://www.irregularminiatures.co.uk/

Hat Zulu war British command may be your best bet, I just cannot think of any that are any closer.

Re: British Bobbies & NYPD

Thank you Alan, that's exactly what I was looking for.

Re: British Bobbies & NYPD

This pic shows the two types of helmet. One is more like a firemans and other like the Zulu War British. The cape was worn by all forces and hides a lot but the equipment would be a belt and cartridge pouch. Notice they have trousers and boots and no gaiters/anklets.

The avatar pic looks like a 1960s/70s riot duty helmet. Met Police had the ER badge as did the RMP (Royal Military Police).
