Oddly enough, I have just taken some pics of mine for Vincent and it does look like 'Buttons Ltd' may well be an overstamping on something else - its not a clear crisp stamp. Odd.

There are variations on dies and makers for both Army Fire Service (lugs) and War Department Fire Service (slider). As Mike says, effectively the same size as the Life Guards cap badge.

Blue RTR beret badge

Gents, I have an RTR cloth beret badge which is black, but not sure why there would be one with a blue backing.

Anyone know anything about this? Could it be for cadets?

Thanks all

Civil Defence Corp region titles

Gents, I recently picked up this little group.

I don't recognise the letter E badge. Is it in fact CDC insignia?

Also are any of the regions particularly scarce?

Thanks in advance

Ian, a relatively scarce cap badge on the quiet. I suspect only made in anodised alluminium. Have only found these made by LB&B, flat backed and typical of late AA badges. There are collars too.
