Most corps and regiments adopted distinctive buttons. They were worn on the Service Dress Jacket, primarily, though some units may have worn them on greatcoats and service dress hats as well. Buttons were generally produced in three sizes; 15 mm for use on caps , 20 mm for use on pockets or shoulder straps and 25 mm for use on greatcoats and sometimes tunic fronts as well. Not all units adopted all three sizes of buttons Highland Regiments, for example, would have no use for the smallest size button, since they did not wear Service Dress Caps or Field Service Caps. The Army in Canada adopted a special SD Jacket known as a Walking Out Jacket, drab, serge that many units probably added regimental or corps buttons to. When there was a shortage of unit buttons, or no unit button was adopted, the standard button was called the General Service button and was appropriate for wear by members of any unit. At right are examples of the General Service button, in black for Rifle Regiments and in brass for all others. Most clothing would be issued with this type of button affixed.
