Unknown Button Crown, Crocodile and IC ??
 
1 Attachment(s)
Would appreciate any assistance in identifying this button please. Its white metal and appears to have a King's crown above a Crocodile (or Alligator) above italic letter "IC" (may be JC ??).
Made by Firmin, London.
Will be disposing of it once identified.

Thanks in advance

For me also, I have a yellow metal one.

Hi Paul

As said Jamaica Constabulary, possibly also worn by Jamaica Customs (which is what I have them as in my collection).

I'd be interested to see one in yellow metal, it could be worn by Customs, rather than the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

I had a quick hunt for it earlier, couldn't find it, I'll have another look.

My mistake - not "JC" but "JLF"?

18mm diameter.

Yes, Jamaica Local Forces. MHS BULLETIN No. 118, page 55.

Ta. Closest I could think of was "Land" rather than "Local" but that didn't sound right.
