Yes this should be a polish Railway marking, as deciphered by Bert or other on Gunboard, the unit stamp is too small for germans.

Hallo Rober and Andy,

Thankfor your help 

I thought if it wasn't the Cameroonian police units, but rather a leather scabbard that worked poorly in tropical conditions.

After 1918 and there were paramilitary units of the railroad guards. The fact that from 1927 there was a military training for railwaymen - in Polish Kolejowe Przysposobienie Wojskowe - abbreviation KPW (something like Home Guard). They were equipped with Mauser rifles and practiced bayonet combat.


So mayby you are right ...
