 More mysteries, and an answer.

What is the identity of these buttons from Tony’s collection?

Letter ‘M’:

Stokes Melb


A. J. Parkes Aust Wide

Update to this button to come soon!


Cam Smith has an answer for a school buttons shown recently;

Hales School, Perth

I didn’t realise it was a swan’s head on top!

Set up by the first Anglican Bishop of Perth, Mathew Blagden Hales, as a boys school in 1858.

The Hales school cadet badge. Thanks, Cam.
