    Dear Gentlemen,


    In France, the provost's office, or provost gendarmerie, is a detachment of the National Gendarmerie outside French territory.

    The provost units are responsible for the military police and part of the military justice.

    Provosts were established:


    - in times of war, to accompany troops in the field (with missions to control movements behind the front, to take charge of prisoners, to search for and arrest deserters and to neutralize enemy spies);


    - at all times, when large units, formations or detachments of the armed forces are stationed or operating outside the national territory; for example, there have been permanent provost gendarmeries in Dakar, Djibouti and Germany.


    Presentation of the insignias of the Provost in Djibouti homologation G.2109:


    - Prévôté CFS Drago lisse / enamel:




    - Prévôté CFS retirage Drago Paris (guilloché reverse & not enameled / plastiline?)




    - Prévôté TFAI Arthus-Bertrand Paris:






    - Prévôté TFAI no maker:




    Yours sincerely,
