Other Ranks' Cap Buttons

Collectors of regimental buttons find hussar regiments quite disappointing, as the dress tunics were fastened with plain brass ball buttons. Undress frocks and khaki service dress had buttons with universal badges of the royal arms, common to all regiments. These small buttons are part of an Other Ranks' field service cap and have the universal badge in miniature.
