418745 is listed in SRS as being used by CO A of the 4TH Kentucky Volunteer Infantry in 1898 during the Spanish American War.
I do not see any logical explanation for BP being associated with that usage.
My guess would be later use by some outfit with the initials BP- perhaps something like the Bureau of Prisons, Boobsburg Police, British Petroleum [hey, who knows!], or an individual Buford Pusser or....
It will probably remain an unanswered question as far as getting anything with any degree of certainty or documentation.
