The first one is a 21st Lancers badge worn on a civilian jacket lapel buttonhole.

The second one shows overseas service chevrons and was part of another badge. Again a civilian jacket badge.

Its all one badge.

there used to be asmall fitting on the rear of the 21L badges that the screw thread on the chevrons went into.

as a note a Red Chevron indicates 1914 service and is not connected to being wounded.
