1261st Military Police Company
The 1261st Military Police Company provided the sercurity at North Pickenham, as well as patroling the nearby towns including Kings Lynn.
The hundred-man force was commanded by Capt William H Darrow. When the 492nd was disbanded in August, they stayed on to serve the incoming 491st BG.
The links on this page listing the Officers and Enlisted Men that served in the 1261st are incomplete and error prone. We've compiled these lists by collecting bits and pieces from official records, special orders and from written accounts by the veterans themselves. We are in the process of trying to figure out who all was in the 1261st and what they did. Our lists are a work in progress and will be corrected as new information comes in from our visitors.
