Default Some unknowns

Any help please appreciated with the slip on, badge and lanyards in the attached pictures ( which I wont be keeping ).

I thought the dark green lanyard was possibly Kings Regiment but close up it appears to be dark green and black.

Thanks in advance

P.B.

The white slider with the blue band was worn by Officer Cadets of "C" Squadron at RAF College Cranwell. No longer worn.

The wreath cap badge is, I think, British Airways (or similar).

Dave.

Hi Peter,

The yellow, red and blue lanyard is Royal Sussex.

Just a quick guess at the lanyards.
Royal Pioneer Corps
9/12 Lancers
RMA Sovereigns Company
RAEC
Royal Engineers
Cheers

My assessment

Royal Pioneer Corps
9/12 Lancers if scarlet - if maroon/old gold is SOUTH STAFFORDS
RMA Sovereigns Company - more likely ROYAL SUSSEX
RAEC
Royal Engineers - if very dark blue otherwise could be R SIGNALS or RCT - if dark green and black is unknown to me

Default Sovereign's Company?

Did they they change from Sovereign's Platoon to Sovereign's Company? It is very different from the Sovereign's Platoon lanyard. I still have mine somewhere.
