Some patches and bars help needed
 
8 Attachment(s)
Hey :)

So I was trying to look for some information about these patches

Is the wings ones kings crown or queens crown and what age are they does anyone know ?

What are the square patches ???

Why is there a 1 on some of the medal bars ???

What is the silvery thing it looks at the back that it fits over something but it's too small for a tie ???

Thank you for any help :)

None of these are mines peeps

The black cat is 17th (British) Division. Post war Malaya. Eagle looks to be Army Air Corps. The 1 on the Africa Star ribbon, denotes 1st Army.

The wings are QC Army Flying Badges, the Eagles are for SNCOs & WOs in the Army Air Corps worn above chevrons and below badges of rank.

The silver broach looks like an edelweis.
