Brown boots are needed from the basic figure.
"Kit out your Action Man for every phase of military service with these authentic true-scale equipment sets", read the Equipment Manual. The M.P. is basically an accessorised Action Soldier. The accessories could be bought as set or separately and included:
MILITARY POLICE SET: Tunic, trousers, .45 Pistol, holster, white pistol belt, MP armband, truncheon (wood colour), kit bag, scarf (red bib type), Equipment Manual.
M.P. HELMET AND SMALL ARMS SET: Helmet (MP), pistol belt (white), .45 Pistol, holster, truncheon (wood colour), Equipment Manual.
M.P. KIT BAG: Bag with strap and grommets. Equipment Manual.
M.P. TUNIC SET: Tunic, red scarf (bib type), MP armband. Equipment Manual.
M.P. TROUSERS: Unique to MP. Equipment Manual.
Notably, the MP set did not come with a helmet in it's set form. A separate equipment card needed to also be purchased. The Army Manual (that was included with the boxed Action Soldier) had details of how to set up this figure, and the accessories available. The trousers were different to the basic soldier and the tunic can be confused with the British Infantryman Jacket (although evidence of this Palitoy 'swop' has been found on a rare equipment card).
