    The oval cloth badge with the star flanked by a half-wreath of oak leaves is a Fire Brigades' duty-position sleeve badge identifying an Unterkreisführer.
    See here for another example: Fire police District Leader Badge

    The dark cloth badge with the gold cogwheel design is a career-badge for naval engineering officers [Ingenieuroffiziere].
    See here for another example: MBertram

    I cannot identify the red cloth badge with the "258"; but it is not German.

    (Don't know about the metal tag, but a theory has been brought up about it on http://warrelics.eu/forum/erkennungs...dentify-50743/ which may be an answer.)

    The "258" collar tab MIGHT be French or Belgian? As stated certainly not German.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The "258" is a french collar patch. In the post-worls-war II years diamond shape patches were adopted for use on the left sleeve. This one is for the 258. Infantry Regiment.
