militaria item Surrey Imperial Yeomanry officer's tunic button
- British
This shows Lord Middleton's personal crest surrounded by the regimental title. He raised the regiment in 1901. This unit became Queen Mary's Own SY in 1911, receiving new badges and buttons reflecting the change of title. The tunic was patterned on that of the New South Wale Lancers - khaki with a scarlet plastron.

- British
This button (2.3cm) is marked on the reverse 'J.GIEVE & SONS PORTSMOUTH'. Trading under this designation from 1896 to 1903. As Queen Victoria died in 1901, this button would have been produced in a fairly short span of years at the end of the 19th century.

militaria item 43rd Cameron Highlanders of Canada button
- Canadian
This regiment, raised in 1914 as the 43rd Infantry Battalion, also known as the Cameron Highlanders, served with great distinction on the Western Front in WW1 and one of the officers was awarded a VC in 1917. This is almost certainly an other ranks button by virtue of its construction and lack of any gilt finish.
