Button ID
« on: August 17, 2017, 06:08:58 PM »
Just a test to see if photo bucket will still let me post photos , but if anyone can help with these buttons feel free to add any comments , the small one at the top is interesting , it says admiral Nelson 1st of Aug , which o think may have been the date of the battle of the Nile , the larger one has some sort of crest on it but I can't ID it . So thanks in advance for any comments and hopefully PB will still work.cheers tam.

Hi Tam,

That is a livery button, its:

Campbell of Shawfield and Islay, a griffin sergeant holding the sun between sits claws.  Motto: Fidus Amicus "Loyal Friend"

Walter Campbell of Shawfield (1741 – 19 October 1816), the grandson of Daniel Campbell MP, was Rector of the University of Glasgow from 1789 to 1791. He was also the Laird of Islay, Scotland

Cheers, Chris
