The 2nd King Edward's Horse buttons were in gilt for Officers and brass for Other Ranks (Figure 448) with a simple design of 2 over KEH (Ripley and Darmanin Ref No 142).  Ripley and Darmanin only note a brass button and do not differentiate between Officers and Other Ranks.  The buttons are in two sizes, 25mm for the breast of the tunic and 17mm for the cuff.
