From text and photographs I know that during WW2 Riflemen (at least within 8th Rifle Brigade) were allowed to wear black buttons on their battle dress. Within 8RB this was allowed after a visit by the King sometime during the war. As far as I know there were two types of black buttons (see pictures below). Can anyone tell me which type was used during WW2, or even better does anyone have pictures showing this? "Type 1" "Type 2"
