Good start Wayne,

Many more to go. The British Button Society published a pretty complete list of SA Buttons in one of there journals in the mid 90's. You should be able to still get a copy of it from them.

If you need any help with identification of the ones you have, just ask and Ill see what I can do.

Thanks all

Steven, I will certainly get back to you re IDing any unknown buttons. I have various drawings done by Denis Darmanin and published some years back, these do include articles from BBS as well as the now defunct IUBCC.

I have also recently acquired two Diamond Fields Horse buttons. I believe the unit only lasted under that name for about 2 years.

Regards Wayne
