On the button front I am looking for RAOC 1947 pattern anodised buttons (with Corps title around the edge) the small example is I believe still a 1918 pattern with plain aluminium backing?
Yes Mike,

If i can help, I will definitely keep an eye out for you. Let's have an image to look at, the more looking the merrier

I'm looking for a couple of "Ordnance" buttons actually, for my collection of buttons. This would allow for the cross over into the Control Department & Commissariat & Transport Corps & Department.
(Well you never know, .... do you)


Happy New Year to you all

Gents, 3 examples of the early Kings Crown anodised alluminium RAOC cap badge.

'Bent over slider'
'Bent over slider - colour error
Regular attached slider.

All are unmarked by the maker.
