Default Glamorgan Imperial Yeomanry

Can anyone please confirm that K.C. Glamorgan Imperial Yeomanry buttons were officially worn until 1908 when the regiment was renamed Glamorgan Yeomanry?

These particular buttons have Hamburger & Co. London back marks.

I am pretty sure that I already know the answer but as Howard Ripley doesn't illustrate the post-Imperial Glamorgan Yeomanry button in his Buttons of the British Army 1855-1970, I thought it best to ask someone more knowledgeable than myself.

That same button (Bronzed version date from 1904) is in Bryn Owen's book.

See attached thumb nail from Ripley & Darmanin's Yeomanry Buttons MHS Special 2005.

Thank you both for the confirmation. My buttons are actually W/M but are very dirty.
