    Two related questions.

    I understand that the British government announced some years ago that no new field marshals would be created. The uniforms of the ones extant therefore had/have only Queen's Crown

    (E II) buttons.  With the ascension of Charles III to the throne, I assume there is no requirement to 'swap out' the earlier buttons for a 'King's Crown' pattern.  

    1. That said, is it likely any will be produced?

    "Why is he asking such a stupid question?" you may ask.

    Well, I have several uniform displays of British Field Marshal uniforms with only General Officer pattern buttons. Why? Because I have NEVER, after more than a decade of searching, been able to secure original or copy King's Crown field marshal buttons, until this past week when I bought one 22mm specimen online, hideously priced.

    2. Does anyone have a source for these?
