I’ve heard from some Greek collectors who point out that the center symbol (a Minoan labrys within a wreath, topped by a royal crown) is that of the EON, the National Youth Organization, from the Metaxas era. I can find no illustration of this piece in any source I have, so its full identity remains mysterious, but I’ll call it an EON merit cross in the absence of better data.
Jeff most interesting,
I have just looked up about the Metaxas EON movement and It seems certain that that’s what the badge is, I suspect, given the Greek post war political situation, that they are quite scarce.
