Default For identification and then for sale

Hi any ideas on these please, am happy to move on if anyone interested, but for curiosity sake would like too know?

1st all the white squares, remind me off cigarette silks?
2nd - Tactic Force, the 15th Service Btn. and the SVC BN? (Service Battalion)
What could be a Belgium or French Epaulette Medic and Blue circle wire emblem which could be Medical?
Yellow Liver bird? German naval badge upside down, just noticed, and Polish subdued packet had 20 on it ??? There is what appears to be an American three stripes with winged Seahorse???
3rd - Epaulets Dutch Air Force Pakistan?? and Police/Customs still in packet and can't read it??
4th - Australian Cadets (figured this out myself!!) Irony! Any use to anyone have other stuff, if anyone collects Russian??

All the best billy

I may be interested in the Russian stuff, depending on what it is.

The 15th National Service Battalion flash is Australian - circa 1950s. Worth around $15-20.

The Cadet corps blue patches are also Australian. Worth about $10 each.

Regards,

Mick

The ones with the wreath, sword and crown are rank badges for "Brigadier" (police sergeant) of the Netherlands Police (current).

And the text of the package reads:
POLITIE
Korps Landelijke politiediensten
SCHUIFP. GEBORDUURD HOOFDAGENT

Translation:
Police
Corps of National Police Services
SLIPOVER WORSTED CHIEF CONSTABLE

Thanks Henk, quite a mixture here then!

Here are better pictures now its daylight, Russian badges for attention of Marc, the German Naval badge correct way up! Liver bird (what it resembles) Fighter Sqn of some sort???, the Tactic Shoulder who and what ? The Seahorse with wings and rank chevrons has to be American and guessing Naval Seals??? Clarification would be nice, and a better picture of the Polish Reconnaissance Drone badge, I have the Canadian Service Battalion along with this other badge presumably they go together?? And the Medical badges would imagine the wire on blue symbol is medical?

Wound Stripes 1st WW these are Green to which country are they for? Austrian Pilots badge, all the best billy

I've seen the small green chevrons labelled as Army Cadet insignia indicating attendance at annual camp, but can add no more.

The Green service chevrons are Army Cadet Force and worn point uppermost. They were still being worn in Lincolnshire ACF as recently as 2005 !

It appears to be medical (basic shape of winged staff), possibly U.S. Army Medical Corps ?
