New button spotted online: Royal Motor Yacht Corp







No, this button which is backmarked ‘Kitchener Ltd Sydney’ is not from the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron. The RMYC has operated from Pittwater since 1926. For their history see https://www.royalmotor.com.au/the-club/rmyc-history

The original club house.

    Ahaha! I have my Button marked as Royal Melbourne Yacht Club. So thank you.
    I did go through the corresponding web site you directed me to and found the information of great interest. I could not find a button on any of the jackets and I noticed that their logo today is not of the same design as is shown on the button. I guess with the almost 100 years since it’s granting of Royal decree that the logo has changed but I just remark on that fact. Carol.

      And of course Amor was a Sydney based button maker, like the RMYC. The Melbourne lot was never called ‘club’, only ‘squadron’ as far as I could tell from their webpage history.
