The Royal Military Police RMP is the corps of the British Army responsible for the policing of army service personnel, and for providing a military police presence both in the UK and while service personnel are deployed overseas on operations and exercises. Members of the RMP are often known as 'Redcaps' because of the scarlet covers on their peaked caps and scarlet coloured berets. The RMP's origins can be traced back to the 13th century but it was not until that a regular corps of military police was formed with the creation of the Military Mounted Police, which was followed by the Military Foot Police in Although technically two independent corps, they effectively functioned as a single organisation. The Provost Marshal is a post which goes back to the 13th century and was originally an under-officer of the Earl Marshal. During the First World War the Military Police grew from all ranks to over 25, all ranks by the end of the War.

Proposals to drop the UK's ageing tanks in favour of modern capabilities such as cyber warfare have been developed by senior British Army figures, according to The Times. It says the proposals are being examined by the government due to the soaring costs of upgrading Britain's Challenger 2 tanks and the Warrior armoured vehicles. Both were last year described as "obsolete" and the Ministry of Defence MoD is considering whether changes in warfare require investment in non-traditional capabilities.
