Does anyone know who LP were?

Possibly a South African company as all items observed have been found in South Africa.
Observed items include 1” and 1.5” signal flares, 1.5” CS cartridges, and L1A1 CS grenades, all of these items are dated mid-1960’s.

Hi George, I think you are correct in saying that LP isn't English. The M1 designation is not on any of my tins or carts and I've never seen a yellow tin in 35 years. Also very low lot numbers. We produced large amounts of cartridges and lot numbers go into 100s.
Thanks for the interesting pics.

Hi Tony,
I’ve just come across some saved photos that I sent to you in June 2017 when there was a wooden box up for sale in South Africa. I’ve just noticed that it is another LP marked item.

Certainly every LP marked item I’ve seen has been located in South Africa, and all are from the 1960’s.
