Default Requested Help on WW2 Slouch Hat formation badges, 1 a Chindits

kindly request help with identifying unit formation badges on my two slouch hats. The first has a blue/yellow/white patch sewn. The second has a grand Chindit Chinthe badge on one side and what appears to be a faded blue triangle over an elongated red/blue strip badge on the other.

Thank you and best,

Smile slouch hat patches

the first one appears to be R.A.S.C. which would be correct the second possibly an Artillery unit attached to the Chindits , in one of my books it shows a similar patch for A.S.C. but with Blue / Yellow below triangle.
Cheers Bob

Hi Mike,

My guess would be: R.W.A.F.F. West African Army Service Corps, serving in Burma attached to the Artillery.

Hi Mike,

I agree with Zob, Middle photo is RWAFF.
Blue triangle indicates Sierra Leone Battalion, RWAFF
Red and Blue rectangles indicate Artillery.
