Hi Btns,
In my reasonable collection of Arabic/Middle East buttons, only the Egyptian buttons feature and eagle or 'seker' (desert hawk) in that pose. All others from Libya down to Yemen, it always has a shield on its chest/ Baybe if you can get someone to translate the Arabic inisitals!
Have you a spare?
Tgds,

Hi Btns.
I was told that you have the sketch and number of the Royal Albert button from the old much, confused for the RA Boat Crews. Can you please upload it in the buttons' section? It has baffled me for years. Thanks.

I received permission to use these scans a while ago, but I had forgotten this request. Here it is.

Hi,
Your button does appear Egyptian to me, but the letters underneath do not mean anything to me, in fact I don't recognise them as Arabic!
