Default Coastal Forces?

I am trying to identify the blazer and lapel badges shown below. The larger badge appears to say something like 'COASTAL FORCES' at the top edge.

The only information I have is that the man wearing them served in the Navy during WW2.

Apologies for the poor quality. Any help appreciated.

The "Coastal Forces" badge doesn't look British.

Seeing that image: it is British.
