Officer Service Dress Buttons

#1
My boss has just asked me if I knew anywhere you could buy buttons for Service Dress - he has just changed his regiment. Can anyone help ?
 
#2
Tip - which regiment might help - most regimental RHQ's hold old sets of Officers kit - if you get stuck could try there - or Ebay :)

Cheers

As he is now a full Colonel described as "Late the Loamshires/Corps of Philanderers etc".He retains his regimental service dress/mess kit/buttons and other such accoutriments except he now wears red tabs and the staff cap badge.

Naaaa he has gone from one Mess Kit to a red one - and his service dress gets red tabs but he has to change the buttons - it all seems a bit wierd to me - the QM stores doesnt help ..

Thanks for the uniformal tip

The Mess Dress should change to Staff Pattern too (although increasingly Colonels and above are retaining their original kit)
