Default White RAOC Bakers Buttons

In my research I have found reference to white 'plastic' buttons to replace the issue white buttons on 'Cooks Whites' for RAOC Bakers. These would have been a regimental purchase and not codified as far as I can work out, and could possibly been worn by RAOC Butchers on white coats by instructor's as well (the standard working dress for butchers being *blue coats with removable buttons)

It is also possible that there were an earlier RASC example! but not as far as I can ascertain an ACC example?

I do not have an example of this button but would like one or at least a picture of one or extra information.

* amended from brown...

The only ones I ever saw being worn were the plain white plastic in the same style as the brown ones that were used on the Denim BD.

I have a plastic engraved 14/20 Hussars button given to me by Brigadier Palmer just prior to the arrival of Princess Anne on her visit to the Regiment in I think 1976 in Sennelager. Said to have been made specially for her Coveralls so she could clamber over the Regiments Chieftains.
But I've never seen a plastic RAOC button.
Regards
Sean

Yep Leigh very similar, I'll have to dig it out and have a closer look at it.
