Description
2 x brass 'Teal' buttons for staff uniform. Design: raised 'ETA' (from 'Teal') within wreath as well as wings which come out from either side of the wreath. Also coiled rope effect around the edge of the button. This design was reproduced on many 'Teal' uniform buttons. One button is only brass but the other has a darker metal used to enhance the design: on the wreath and also on the outer edge surrounding the rope design. Design is similar to 2006.238 which are smaller.
