Button description
Pattern of button currently unknown

Comment Photographs show that staff were issued with uniforms bearing metal buttons, at least in the 1920s and 1930s (see link), but probably much earlier. Marked buttons have however not come to light, suggesting that the buttons were either plain, or that they bore a monogram or device that is not readily identifiable as an issue of the GTTCo.
