    On seconds thoughts, I DO know what this insignia is.

    Not British but Irish. It is Eastern Command of the Irish Army.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Gar for taking the time and sharing your knowledge,your info sent me on a very fulfilling search into the history of the Irish military,I actually have a second one too that I thought was British,it's identical to this one but with a brown line under it,I'll keep you in mind if I ever decide to part with them or if I come across any medals...Thanks again,Tom
