Default Several badges for identification.

Could you help to identify few badges I have found recently. I am aware that some of them probably are not British but I hope admins donít mind.

Hi,

Fourth from left is Belgian NCO's Ninth Infantry Regiment,1950's.

I don't know the others, but the first badge may possibly be French.

Default Eagle

The lapel badge at the end is a Napoleonic Eagle for the French 62nd Regiment. It was captured in battle by the Essex Regiment, who adopted it as a battle honour.
Regiments that captured French Eagles tend to display them as part of their uniform and the original Eagles are kept and displayed. It upsets the French President when he visits!
