Hi All
Can anyone ID all of these for me please? The only reference book I have doesn't show very many formation signs.
Thanks, cheers,
Alex

middle row first is Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft. Looks to be the second version which is a brighter red background than the first version.

From top left, the second tartan is Cameron Highlanders and the ninth is HLI, worn in lieu of lettered shoulder titles in WW2 and for some time after.
