Would MP's have worn the red hat, white anklets, belt and webbing on active service or would it have been toned down a bit? If the red cap was worn I assume it would still have been de rigeur to have the peak pushed down so far that you couldn't see where you were going! :-)

I would assume that the peak would be as stiff as possible.
If the MPs were in the field for combat operations, they would wear a helmet just like everyone else. It had a red band around it and the letters "MP" in a blue square on the front.

There is a picture on this Royal Miltary Police Association website:

I wish some company would make a WW2 British MP in peaked cap in 28mm. Early war with Tommy Guns and pistols. Would not this be useful for Operation Sea Lion? What say you Warlord.

Reviving a dead thread – has someone made any? I would definitely buy some.

I used WW2 figures with WW1 heads in service caps transplanted.

It isn't like you need loads of them.
