First one is upside down and should read "OS" not "SO", it's Officers Steward Women's Royal Naval Service

For the last one, I found this (searching for "Gagetown"): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CFB_Gagetown

Badge 6 is likely a fashion item. Comeco make handbags and purses. The motto on this badge appears to be gibberish?

Good day Malcolm,

Further to Henk's post, the badge is for Number 5 Det., Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) from Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Gagetown. As we are a bilingual nation, all items from the Canadian Forces are in both English and French. So, at the top "BFC" is the contraction in French for "CFB". And while not sure what the exact translation would be, "CEE" would be the French for "EOD".

Ian
