SFM?

Have seen this on a few internet sites, along with mention of Exercise BLACK SERPENT.
Presume this is an acronym for Special Forces Medic. Have been told they’re possibly wearing a new SFM wing?...

Wings

I disagree. Reckon they’re a clean pair of WW2 Indian made wings. Various Para battalions were raised in India and wore wings like these. Possibly 13th (Lancashire) Battalion the Parachute Regiment?...

Large local badge, Cavalry?

Please attached photo.
Badge is large, see 50p for scale, and beautifully (locally?) embroidered. Prob too big to be a TRF, and was bought as a “Sports badge”.
Grateful for a positive I.D.

16 is a WW2 US Navy Amphibious Forces badge.
18 may be a Rhodesian Light Infantry flash.

Not Rhodie

I don’t recognise it as Rhodie.
I suspect the picture is upside down and the pick axe is actually a fouled anchor. The red Scribble would then look like Arabic writing.
Leads me to the conclusion...

RAF

The diamond shaped red badge with a palm tree is 30 Squadron RAF.
The language on the badge next to it is German. Reads “Leo the lion, king of the undergrowth”

Red diamond

It may be a coincidence, but the 5th US Infantry Division wore a red diamond. I’ve not seen one with a ‘5’ embroidered on it though.

Possibly worn on headgear or...
