Default Various Colour Patches for Identification Revisited

After I posted the small lot of colour patches I acquired last month and requested help identifying them, a friend gave me about half a dozen more, plunging me back into the unknown. Once again, I tried the internet and have tentative IDs, but would appreciate the confirmation or corrections of members here:

1. Headquarters, 7th Australian Division
2. Schools and Training Units, Second Australian Army
3. 3rd Australian Corps Royal Australian Engineers
4. 1st Australian Corps Australian Army Ordnance Corps
5. 3rd Australian Corps Australian Army Ordnance Corps
6. 3rd Australian Corps Troops Australian Army Service Corps
7. Field Survey Units, RAE

Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

Hi Dob,

I think No 4 might be HQ 3 Aust Corps - it looks black not dark blue and is of a material I would associate with Western Australian manufacture, not anything that a very rare 1 Aust Corps AAOC patch would be made of.

Once again many thanks, Keith! Yes, I think it is black, so will make the appropriate change to my notes. I would doubt very much there was anything rare in either of the two groups, I'm just hoping for a variety of examples to represent the Australian army.
