US Military Police Nightstick Billy Club Baton

Postby muckaroon1960 » Sat Jun 30, 2018 12:19 pm

Saw this baton on the car boot today and bought it with the idea of stripping it and painting it white to go with the USMC service dress mannequin. I have now discovered it is an original US Military Police Nightstick Billy Club Baton (circa WW2). Had no idea until I realised it had US stamped on the end. Nice patina and well worn. I'll leave this well alone and in original condition. :thumbsup: **==

These batons were issued unpainted then painted depending on their use. Black, Brown and White being quite common colours or should that be colors? :grin:

Yes Mark I do seem to find the odd gem. Was there early today and didn't think the car boot would yield that much. I did also buy today a National Geographic magazine from 1965 about Winston Churchills funeral and life. It has a thin record in one of the pages still attached. Not rare but an interesting read.

I bet that baton has given a few people a head ache or two, over the years.. =))
