Circa 26mm in diameter, fixed shank and maker marked Firmin & Sons, 153 Strand London & 13 Conduit Street (this style of naming was only used 1856 - 1869). Fire gilt button in fabulous condition. Rare.

In 1869, there was a major reorganisation of army supply and transport capabilities: the commissaries of the Commissariat and the officers of the Military Train were amalgamated together with the officers of the Military Store Department to form what was called the Control Department under a Controller-in-Chief. The following year, other ranks of the Military Train were combined with those of the Commissariat Staff Corps and the Military Store Staff Corps to form a body of soldiers, officered by the Control Department, which was named the Army Service Corps (ASC). The Control Department was abolished in 1875.

Scarce Pair of Military Train Officers Gilt Brass Buttons, Large and Medium Patterns (later ASC)

Large button is simply gorgeous, circa 25mm in diameter, fixed shank and maker marked Smith Kemp & Wright, Birmingham. Gilt good and in very good condition.

Medium pattern button is circa 17mm in diameter, fixed shank and maker marked Jennens & Co London. Gilt a little dull but otherwise in very good condition.

The buttons have a slightly different colour to them as from different manufacturers.

The Military Train was authorized by Royal Warrant in 1856. The Military Train was replaced by the Army Service Corps in 1870.

The corps was initially based at Horfield Barracks in Bristol, but in 1859 the 'Brigade Office' and Depot moved to Woolwich. At this time, supply duties were the responsibility of the Commissariat (a uniformed civilian body, principally responsible for food, forage and fuel); while provision of arms, ammunition and other critical stores was the responsibility of the Military Store Department (formed following the abolition of the Board of Ordnance in 1855).

This button is not mentioned or featured in Ripley.
