Default 3 badges with arab script - ID requested, real or fake?

These three badges were on a button card.
As I do not collect badges I am going to put them up for sale on the forum.

Before I do so I would like to know
- if they are genuine (because of the forum rules)
- what they are and what the texts say (being curious)
- a fair price

The silver coloured badge has a broken lug.

The second one I think is Abu Dabi Defence Force but I'll have to check.

I have the second as Aden Federal Regular Army, and the third one as Oman 'Frontier Force'.

The second one is the South Arabian Army, third is Frontier Force (Oman)

I'm going to "ask a friend" about the first as it's a bit obscure.

They are all genuine.

I think the main object of the first is the number ۲ (2).

Default Arab Badges

The second one is definitely Jaysh alittihaad annithamy - Federal Regular Army,
Aden. The first, I think is Urdu.

I've discussed the first with some friends and we think its Persian, but Urdu is also a possibility. And yes that's a 2 above.

I've also taken another look at the second and I agree it is Federal Regular Army. Silly me.
