Title Royal Flying Corps buttons (13)
Nationality British
Period c 1914-17
Sold

These are officer's buttons, the large ones marked 'Firmin & Sons London', with traces of gilt to the reverse. There are four large and nine small ones. The RFC (1912-18) was the forerunner of the RAF and was part of the British Army untill April 1918. I believe the ORs had the general service button on their tunics (with the Royal Arms).

The condition is good, but the gilt on the front has mostly been polished out, leaving clear traces to the rear of most of the buttons.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
