See also the Tailors Q-Z page New finds: These ‘British Made’ Beutrons probably date from 1946 (when the name was first used) until 1949 when G.Herring claimed that its plastic buttons were Australian made. Below is a close up and a ‘General Purpose’ Australian made button that show a similar style.
