Default French Foreign Legion 'losange'

Good evening,

I am amazed to see a French Foreign Legion badge on the arm of a British Lt-General, sir Barnabas White-Spunner. I think he is a 'caporal d'honneur' of the Legion, isn't he ?

FM Montgomery wore something similar when he was Supreme Commander SHAPE (two inverted chevrons above a lozenge 11/Chasseurs bugle). Mike
