~ Channel Islands Militia Buttons ~


In this category I will be sharing my collection of Channel Islands Infantry Militia Buttons.  As new buttons are acquired they will initially be featured immediately below as a ‘new addition’ to the collection.  Subsequently they will be added lower down the page.  Displayed in this way, you will more easily be able to see the most recent addition along with the date of its inclusion into the collection.

If you have any questions, comments or perhaps new information about any of the buttons and/or backmarks, then I would very much like to hear from you.  Also if you have a button for sale that you feel may be a good fit for my collection, then please feel free to contact me.

Happy Collecting,
