   Hello.
  I have add this LOM - Chief Commander in my collection.
  After my research, I belive is made in the 60s to the 70s by IRA Green.
  Please, correct me if I am wrong.
  Because the LOM star look worn,I would like to know who may have borne it.
  Can anyone tell me how many have been awarded and if a holder list exist for the period 60s-70s.
  Every comment is welcome.
  Thanks.
  Regards, Jannis.

Hi Jannis, here's my LOM I have in my collection. Its the Legionnaire version I believe. Has split loop suspender brooch and a makers mark for Williams & Anderson. A diamond with a zig zag or lightning bolt?

I would date this a post war, possibly 1950's to early sixties?
