Default Unknown Badges

Hi all, just found this great site and hoping to see if anyone knows what these badges are. My friend found them in his loft and think they were his dad's. We can find anything, so any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I don't think any of them are military. They don't look like any military badges I've ever seen. Possibly school badges when they used to wear blazers (remember them, mine was black with sky blue stripes and made me an obvious target?).

The first pic isn't a gryphon or a wyvern as it has no wings. The nearest I remember is the parrot in the 'Talking Parcel' cartoon from the 70's.

"The first pic isn't a gryphon or a wyvern as it has no wings." S'what happens when non-heralds design crests!
