Default UNKNOWN CLOTH BADGES.

good morning gents.
could i please ask if anyone out there has any idea what
formation`s etc that any of these 4 badges may belong to.
i have the COLE book on "formation badges of world war 2" but i can`t see them in that [unless it is a case of not seeing the wood for the trees].
thank you guys in advance,regards andy.

No RAOC Emergency Reserve is Vertical Red/Blue/Red with Yellow Sword as illustrated below.

A Yellow Sword on Red Shield with a Black Horiontal bar is 'Territorial Army Troops'
