Fire Brigade uniform clothing buttons for sale.

During World War 2, Fire Brigades were brought under central Government control (nationalised) in 1941 in order to be able to quickly share resources across the UK. From 1941-1948, all Fire Brigades in the UK wore the same design of NFS (National Fire Service) button. In 1948, Fire Services returned to a regional structure under local authority control and adopted separate designs for the buttons and badges of each town and county Fire Service. In 1974 there was a major re-structure of UK counties and the names of many fire brigades changed as a result.

Most of the buttons on our catalogues are from UK town and county fire brigades and date from 1948 to the present day.

Fire Brigade buttons tend to be chromium plated - this is shown as chrome on our button catalogues.  Older (pre-1941) Fire Brigade buttons are often brass.

Button diameters are shown in millimetres, measured to the nearest half-millimetre.
