Default Unknown blanking patch RAF medical badges

Gents a few most pleasung RAF finds today. Can anyone identify the L and R blanking patch unit/badges at all?

Also came across this Warrant Officer 'slip on' but the crest is not the standard pattern to my eye. Again, any ideas gents. I'm sure its RAF.

The Royal Arms is the one adopted by the RAF a few years back. Horrible thing.

The first blanking patch is an RAF Paramedic patch. I am not sure what the other blanking patch is beyond being medical, but possibly Royal Navy as it looks like a sea horse.

The other blanking plate has the patch of 4626 Sqn RAUXAF at Brize Norton.
