Royal Air Force Working Pattern No. 7514.  Stores reference 22A/422.  Buttons, A.T.C. Small (Chromium Plated).  Here we are offering a 'Working Pattern' (sometimes referred to as a sealed pattern) button for the uniform as worn by the Air Training Corps.  A working pattern is a sample, identical with the standard pattern kept at A.I.D. Kidbrook, used to ensure that the manufacturer makes the item in question to the exact specifications of this 'original' piece - essentially a template to ensure no variation.  The button here is mounted on the original working pattern card via linen thread tape and sealed with lead such that it cannot be removed.   Dated 25th February 1941.  Stock code M28096.
