    The first is a fob or charm - more correctly known as a 'sweetheart' item.........

    I would guess the first is a sweetheart type of item and it should predate 1958 when they were amalgamated with the East Yorks., the 2nd. badge, Australian military forces is Korean war period (early 50's) and the other I can't remember at this time.

    The second Aussie badge is thought to be a fantasy piece, though their is some debate about this.
