Default New member Cap Badge IDs Query

Hi
I'm Steve and have just joined this forum. I retired 2 years ago and collect coins but have recently taken an interest in cap badges which is connected to some family tree research that I am doing.

I recently purchased a large collection of cap badges and am working my way through the identification...not as easy as I thought. The badges that I am currently on are Scottish and 3 in particular are causing me grief.

If you could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it
Many thanks
Steve
Ps Think the first one may be Dumfries Volunteers ??

Steve,

First two are fake badges. Ebay is awash with them.

the third is a Waist Belt Clasp overlay for the RA and RE that someone has blackened/bronzed. It should be silver or gilt.

regards
