No, they were (and still are, with Queen Elizabeth II cypher) worn by "Staff Officers" - full colonels and brigadiers, who will have belonged to regiments or corps but at that rank level wear that design of button with lion above crown cap badges.

It looks like they do have (or had) a gilt finish, just dull and worn.
A touch of lemon juice should bring up what's left of it.
