Number 6 looks like the Royal Chelsea Infirmary, still worn in anodised ali by the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Edit: Number 4 is the victorian version of no.6

I had a feeling that number 23 was a bank or similar organisation.

Hello ukbrits & all of you,

No.s 4 (QVC) & No. 6 (KC)

The Royal Corps of Invalids (RCI) Tunic Buttons
(Worn by the Pensioners at the Royal Hospital Chelsea)

Note:
Quite often thought of as a button worn by members of the (RCT) Royal Corps of Transport, by many people.

I have them in my button collection as we (The RASC & RCT) have members of the Corps in-house at the RHC, 15 to be exact.

Hope that is of help for you guys.

Ken (The Fatboy)
