The one with the figure is for the Royal Observer Corps.
The other two don't ring any bells with me yet?

Thanks for the replies,im stuck on those two also.Another badge turned up today along with a photograph.Both belonging to my grandfather.I was busy when they were dropped off today,so i was unable to ask further about the photo,but will update as soon as i find anything out. My Grandad- front row 5th from the right
The cap badge is of course REME, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers. A ww2 pattern badge
The photo is Home Guard and it noteworthy for the Browning Automatic Rifles.
Thanks Ade,interestingly i didnt know he was ever in the Homeguard.If only he was around to chat to now.He didnt speak much of his time on and after D-day,wasnt even sure which beach he landed on.Dad does remember him mentioning that HMS Rodney was shelling just off the coast and the thunderous roar of shells going inland.Whilst in Normandy i managed by chance to see a detailed picture showing Rodney just off Sword beach so we're peicing it together slowly.Thanks again
Actually Ade, they look more like Chatellerault Machine Guns. :-)
The REME were formed in October 1942 which makes sense if he was active circa D-Day.
Whatever its just an opinion.
Tom I think you could be right
