Very hard to find mm1, be wary of the repro market! I bought mine years ago and it had still been mucked about. (3Tangs cut off and improper lugs added). Good luck! D.J.

Great to see that stuff Mick. The Older commonwealth stuff is not too easy to find. And their modern stuff seems to still have the British influence in their designs. Thanks for sharing! David J.

You sound like a dog with two tails Roy. I felt like that when I got my early Firmin Artillery button. It’s the album cover on my “Royal Artillery buttons” album. Check it out. Best regards, David J.

I believe I can see a faint outline of the letter I in the centre, in the same style as letters you have outlined. Further than that, it’s out of my field. Good luck! D.J.

Further to my post above Sanny1, If you post all that is on the rear of your button, printing, logos design etc. Other members may shoot back a quick answer in greater depth than I did. Regards, D.J.

To me, that looks more like a fantasy piece or likely a button made for the garment industry. I do not believe it to be military. Other members?
