Default Looking to identify some JR Gaunt car badges of my dads

Hi guys! Just scouting the internet to see if I can get some information on some JR Gaunt car badges my dad has and this place seems to have a lot of knowledgable people! If I get some pics posted up will people be able to identify the insignias and possibly provide a little information on them?

Many thanks

Tim

Thanks for the quick reply! Please see pictures below, as I said any information at all would be fantastic! I have included the 50p for reference so you can get a feel of the size

Many thanks

Tim

No.4 is more likely to be a Merchant Navy vessel with that Crown

Default Thistle

As discussed Naval or civilian, London Scottish would have had Hodden Grey as a backing not Red

No.4 is Scottish Fire Service. Possibly the Scottish Fire Service College. Not a MN crown.
