Default Unknown Belgian patches/insignia

Do these look familiar to anyone? Both are Belgian.

Thank you.

The second one was (possibly still is) awarded to Belgian army/gendarmerie personnel who donated blood, it also comes in large and small enamelled versions.

Thanks guys. The links were very useful.

That only leaves the patch with the ‘T’ to be identified

It was included in a lot of 11 patches (10 have been identified) that were sold as Belgian. There is a possibility however that this patch may not be Belgian.
