Westinghouse panel

Are these the correct breakers for an old Westinghouse 20 years maybe? The current breakers say BR on them. Multi colored for different size breakers. If anyone knows I'd appreciate it. Thanks,

20 Amp 1 in. Single-Pole Type BR Replacement Circuit Breaker is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from exactly what I needed breaker fits Bryant/Westinghouse panel as I expected.
Date published: 2015-09-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A shorted lamp caused the Eaton 15A breaker to trip as required. A shorted lamp caused the 15A breaker to trip as required. When the breaker trips the handle goes to a mid position not to the OFF position. To reset the breaker you need to first toggle OFF then ON. I didn't realize that the device had this two step process to reset and couldn't find it in any documentation. Once I discovered the process the breaker worked fine. Some indication of the mid position on the device might have been helpful. To me it looked to be in the off position when it tripped. The HOME Depot description did mention a mid position
