News: MoD Announce RMP "Attachments"

13th November 1988: Whilst the "General's Mutiny" of 5th November was not universal, the Ministry of Defence acted swiftly to prevent a repeat by announcing that Military Policy officers, operating under the prefix Inspector before their standard rank, would be attached to Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy command units. In an interview with BBC News the Provost Marshal Brigadier stated that, "whilst such a move was unprecedented, it was important for the nation, for the public, to see that the Armed Forces were not above the rule of law or the country's civilian masters".
