Default Foreign Air Force badges

Hi here is a few badges just seeking clarification on them:-

1st I believe is Greek with blue enamel, seen another with a plain globe, was this WW2 era?

2nd Pakistan Air Force, when this is from I hope someone might know independence was 1947 so after that?

3rd I am guessing at Rhodesia Royal Air Force, but can't find on google?

Many thanks in advance Billy

Hi lads and thanks for your views! regards the Greek Air Force did they have a role within the RAF as the other occupied countries? also what is the difference in this Enamelled version to the plain globe?

Many thanks billy

The Greek one was worn between 1942 and 1969, there is no significance to the centre blue missing from some badges, most have just worn off.
Cheers
