Default Unknown Buttons

I have three buttons of the same design made by different companies but I have been unable to establish what uniform they are from. Any help appreciated.

They are shipping line buttons worn by a particular company. I will get the book out to see if I can find which one.

They are P & A Campbell Ltd which operated paddle steamers.

My parents met on Lundy Island in the early 1950s. My Father flew the post to the island whilst my mother was convalescing from TB. Just wondering if P and A Campbell Ltd ran the ferry to the island? I will look into that possibility as it would explain why he had the buttons.

Thanks for your id Buttonman and High Wood.
