Default a few colour patches for ID/help please

hi all
just need some help to ID some of these patches and some general information please.
unsure what the 4 yellow on black colour patches are in the left column.
the 3rd down may be 3rd MG but its feel is more of a ww2 period cloth and certainly denser than the 2 patches far right.

i cant find the bottom T patch in 2nd column in Glydes book? (got it, 9 Div HQ, Glyde 427)

what period do you think these are especially the 2 furthest on the right?

anyway, thanks in advance for your help

Not familiar with these. Is the top right red/black rectangle similar to the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment cap badge backing?

Default Triangle

The red and blue triangle with the grey surround (Middle, third row down) is I think Australian Artillery.

thanks for the reply
these im pretty sure are all australian
the 2 on the farthest right are purple and red and purple and white.

purple and red is either 2nd Aust MGS WW1 or its 16th ALHR 1920-30s

purple and white is either 1st Aust MGS WW1 or its 25th ALHR WW2

cheers
