Default Unidentified star badges

Hi all, Is anyone able to identify these badges, whether they are military, what sort of age they are and whether they're even British? Thanks!

I don't think Italian (they use 5 point stars).
These are 6 points, so possibly Austrian army rank

For me they are more likely Belgium or Netherlands than Austrian.

They are Dutch officer rank stars, up to 1940.
