Default A little assortment i need help with

There are a couple i think i recognise but a few with which i haven't a clue
Under a loop, the REME badge looks like gold and appears to have solder marks where the gold lugs have been attached to the badge; the light infantry and crowns are similar.
I've also a PWRR with a bolt back ? No lugs, just a central bolt.

Hi Ipcress.
The bottom right is a collar badge for the devonshire regiment. The one to the left of the devonshires is a Gloustershire regiment back badge. IE the regiment wore two badges on their headress, this one was worn at the back.
Regards
Chris

The brass shamrock badge is Young Citizens Volunteers, and has been widely faked.
