hi john.
Not sure where you can find a picture of their buttons , but almost certainly they wouldnt be wearing the Imperial
General Service Buttons as they were a Colonial Force and no doubt had their own buttons .
cheers 90th.

Same here John. Coming up with nothing. I would have thought all the mounted colonial units had the same buttons.

Hi chard1879.
I dont think all the Mtd Colonial Units would have had the same buttons , all their Badges were differant so I would assume
the Tunic Buttons would also differ from one unit to another , as usual happy to be corrected . Idea .
cheers 90th.

Hi john.
I have been informed by a collegue who thinks the NMP Tunic Button had the same mongrame as their
Helmet Plate , I tend to agree , but still havent been able to find a picture of one as yet. Hope this helps .
