Default Australian Military Forces trouser buttons

I found these in a job lot of mixed buttons. It could open up a whole new field of military button collecting.

Hi Wood,

In Trove there are entries in the Commonwealth gazette of A.C.I. producing plastic buttons for the Department of Defence.

Australian Commonwealth Industries.
Note the funny symbol on the button - a closed H with A & I.
The other letters are a sizing - product code.

Cheers
