• Introducing Button Aerogramme

    Remember aerogramme, a thin sheet of light blue paper that folds into an envelope framed by the red and blue airmail stripe border, with a pre-printed postage stamp? It was a quick way to send a message to someone overseas, with a little saving on the expensive international letter postage.

    This email is one such message to you, a button aerogramme, from the WRBA Button Album.

    Today’s letter features a button contributed by Gayle Wood of Oregon.

    Trooping The Colour

    Trooping the Colour || From the Royal Family website

    “Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen’s official birthday.

    What happens during Trooping the Colour?

    Once The Queen has arrived at Horse Guard’s Parade in Whitehall, she is greeted by a Royal salute and carries out an inspection of the troops, who are fully trained and operational soldiers wearing the ceremonial uniform of red tunics and bearskin hats.”

    And now, view the Motiwala enamel BUTTON associated with the Royal ceremony above, a recent addition to the Button Album.

    This button was chosen to be featured in our first Button Aerogramme, to celebrate the Wide Reach our Button Album is steadily achieving!
