PoW feathers are possibly early South Wales Police, before they went chrome.

The MS Anchor may be something related to Merchant Shipping (I'm sure I have seen this item amongst German or Italian colonial items)

The propeller in circle is an Itailian AirForce trade badge c.WWII

The 'deer' is Transvaal Light Infantry collar badge

The white metal grenade looks like a Central South Africa Engineer Volunteers collar badge with the scroll cut off the bottom of the ball.

The brass metal grenade looks like early South African Engineer Corps collar badge pre 1922.

The white metal grenade could be CSARV Officers badge. The TLI collar is extremely rare.

Thanks for the help guys. The WM grenade looks like it may have originally had a scroll attached. And looking at it closely there is a letter "W" scratched onto the ball of the grenade.

Default POW Feathers For ID.

Also have another POW feathers badge. The badge in the original post is on the left. The badge on the right is also WM, and measures 25mm x 25mm. Thought Imperial Yeomanry at first, but believe these were in brass? Had another look at the badge on the right, and it looks like it's been silver plated.
