Default Oman Badge Collection

Hi all. Just thought I would show the collection of Omani badges that I've put together. If possible I'd be much obliged if anyone could ID the badge at the very top of pic 1, the shoulder title in the middle and the rather large crown below the collar badges in pic 2. It has two screw posts on the back. Not sure when Oman started using anodised badges but I assume these are fairly modern.

Many thanks.

The large crown is a helmet badge for either the Royal Household Guard of Honour or the Oman Royal Cavalry.
The shoulder title is for either the Royal Stables or Oman Royal Cavalry.

It was (might still be) worn with and without a separate Crown above it by the Royal Guard Regiment.

Looks like a good shout for Oman air force. Marc I see you are looking for Oman cloth badges. I take it they are quite tricky to come by?
