Comment
Following the transfer of the individual tramway concerns into the hands of the BC&NJTC (1st April 1933), tramcar crews were most definitely issued with BC&NJT Committee cap badges (see link), so it seems highly likely that they were also issued with buttons bearing the new BC&NJTC monogram.
