Default 'G' Guards Company

Does anyone know what buttons 'G' Guards Coy The London Regiment wear?

Also, does anyone have any spare?

Chris

It looks like it's an anodised general service button with the Royal Coat of Arms on Chris.
Have a look at London Bridge Online,they had an exhibition on the London Regt. Theres a very clear image of the cap badge and button underneath.
