Comment
Although LTCo horse and cable car drivers were not issued with uniforms, conductors most certainly were, at least in later years. Whilst photos clearly show that these uniforms carried metallic buttons (see link), none has yet come to light, suggesting that they were either unmarked, or that if they were marked, then the device used is not readily identifiable as that of the London Tramways Company.
