Default Some patches and bars help needed

Hey

So I was trying to look for some information about these patches

Is the wings ones kings crown or queens crown and what age are they does anyone know ?

What are the square patches ???

Why is there a 1 on some of the medal bars ???

What is the silvery thing it looks at the back that it fits over something but it's too small for a tie ???

Thank you for any help

None of these are mines peeps

The black cat is 17th (British) Division. Post war Malaya. Eagle looks to be Army Air Corps. The 1 on the Africa Star ribbon, denotes 1st Army.

The wings are QC Army Flying Badges, the Eagles are for SNCOs & WOs in the Army Air Corps worn above chevrons and below badges of rank.
