Default Set of African Police Buttons

I'm OK south of the Zambezi but no knowledge north of it.

Can anyone help me with information about the Forces mentioned and the GR&I and VR&I mortifications, which I presume represents the sovereign of the time.

Thanks

The first button is Cunard Line.

Dates for the introduction of the other buttons can be found here:
