Middle one (Key and Chain) is an early Girl Guide County badge for Suffolk

I 'think' that the last one (the 35th Westminster one) is possibly for the 35th City of Westminster Sea Scouts unit - I need my scouting badge notes to be 100% sure but I'm almost certain

The first is an Arabic numeral 2 - so pure guess but how about The Kings African Rifles and the 2nd Battalion??

Purely speculation but, the first badge looks like a faded full dress bullion version of the Indian 19th Division formation sign to me. Also, 2nd K.A.R. only ever wore an English numeral on the regimental flash or incorporated with their pattern of the bugle and strings. The flash is also the wrong colour for this battalion.

That was my immediate impression when I saw it.
