Buttons…

 

musddyheruitage,com 003   Royal artillery Blouse button from the 1770’s, in quite good condition…


Show below; is the button of the 34th Northumberland Regiment, Raised in 1705, it has served this country well with campaign after campaign, untill the regiment was merged in 1881 with the Westmorland regiment and then with the borders to form the Borders Regiment… so a bit more investigation is needed to predetermine the age of this button, but we do know it is prior to 1881, and the other anomaly is there is no other button with the word regiment wrote on the button, in all the records so far it is just the 34th Northumberland… strange hey…


The link below is an excellent website for military buttons, listed within the website is clear photos, and explanation as to the regiment, one of the better ID site’s…

The easiest explanation as to know if you have found a Livery Buttons, is to follow this rule of thumb here, is if it has a line underneath, either straight, twisted or any sort of line, then its more than likely a Livery Button and a good place to search for the ID is by clicking the link below…
