Comment As uniforms were most definitely worn by staff of the CETCoLtd (see link), it seems highly probable that marked buttons were issued, though to date, none has been positively identified. The CETCoLtd was a subsidiary of the New General Traction Company Ltd, which at various times also owned the Douglas Southern Electric Tramways and the Norwich Electric Tramways Co, so it is tempting to speculate whether buttons would have been similar to those issued by the latter, which were script initials.
