COMPANIONS OF HONOUR
The Order of the Companions of Honour was founded
on 4 June 1917. It was originally limited to 50 
members but later enlarged to 65 in 1943, when a 
quota system was introduced as follows:-
The United Kingdom                      45
Australia                                      7
New Zealand                                2
South Africa                                 2
India, Burma and the colonies          9
The quota numbers were altered in 1970 to:-
 
The United Kingdom                      47
Australia                                      7
New Zealand                                2
Other Commonwealth countries        9
In 1975, the quota for "Other Commonwealth
countries" was reduced to 7, with the 2 additional
places being allocated to New Zealand.
The limitation to 65 members does not include 
honorary members.
The Order is of one class only and does not carry
with it any title.
