Default Unknown French Insignia

I was recently given a shoe box full of French insignia as a retirement from the RAF gift by a friend in the French Army. Unfortunately, she failed to note what they were and having looked on google, there are way too many unit badges to be able to find out what they are. I have identified roughly 2/3rds of them but these are the ones I'm having trouble with. I have guessed a few on here that might be wrong so any help would be welcome.

They are in my French Album Here https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...p?albumid=4002

Many thank, Bill

Thanks Just, much appreciated.

Do you know what the symbols on the ranks mean?

Thanks Didier,

That's great. I added a couple more that I had in the box. That's them all on the page now.

When I've named them all I'll rename the page.

Thanks again, Bill
