3. Great piece again dating from the 1920's onwards with M.P stamped into the wood with what looks like a Crown between the letters.
4. Looks like Rosewood batton with the remnants of the leather strap still attached, dating from the early 20's onwards.Lovely wood grain.
5. Very unusual piece this one, stained blue with a chain in the hand grip and what appears to be a brass Kings Crown Navy Button to the end as shown in the photo's. Could be from WW2 regulators.
6. Another very unusual Truncheon in that it is quite fat as opposed to the norm. The handle is wrapped in green nylon cord and has another piece to hang it up with. Looks like it has seen some action over the years.

This type was used by public order units of the Polish Police in conjunction with a riot shield which was also an almost white colour.Polish Milicja riot units were named ZOMO & the longer 63 cm rubber batons had the nickname Lola or Long Blonde amongst ZOMO personnel.
