Default Buttons Ltd

The First Reference to "Buttons Ltd" I can find in the London Gazette is January 1908

but back to the old copper website :

Buttons Ltd. Birmingham. Crossed swords trademark. 1907. Formed from a merger of three smaller factories, and now a division of Francis Sumner Engineering Co."

(interesting page with lots more of our manufacturer's on it)

Royal Marine Artillery and the Royal Marine Light Infantry amalgamated 1923 to form the Royal Marines
RSG amalgamated 1971

OK, Buttons Ltd, have been in the "Button" Business a while, but what about Cap Badges etc, consensus seems to be only a post WW2 manufacturer of badges proper ?? is this correct?
