I've seen these before somewhere I believe they are military just cannot remember what they are
I have a book somewhere that will tell me but I have no idea where it is, and when I find it it will take quite a while I think. I will get back to you within a month with a bit of luck
It's a griffin I take it?
Royal East Kent? (Buffs) I'm not sure exactly how much the buttons differ from the cap badges. OK, I think I'm off track, that looks like a griffin, but East Kent has a dragon it seems.

I have a feeling these are British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) buttons.

Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
Hi, on the back of the buttons are Lotery & Co London and J.C.S & W Ltd London if this is of any further investigative use.
They could be early London Transport buttons, circa 1960 ish. I remember LT used the griffin like the ones show, just a thought
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
I think you could be right about the London transport buttons, the late husband of my neighbour used to be a conductor on London transport. They even had to be licensed for that job back in the day.
A quick search on ebay for "LONDON TRANSPORT GRIFFIN BUTTONS" confirms what they are. Thank you all so much for your information
I assumed they might be military related .
Well nailed John.
