    The sidecap is a workcap [= Arbeitsmütze] of the National Air Defense League [= RLB/Reichsluftschutzbund].

    The cogwheel-and-wreath device is a cap badge for the peaked caps worn by Stoßtrupp Leaders of the Werkscharen of the German Labor Front [= DAF/Deutsche Arbeitsfront].

    The brassard identifies a "Transport Leader", i.e. the person in charge of a specific transport. Transportführer brassards were used by the Wehrmacht, but I cannot tell whether they were used by other services/organizations as well. (The term "Transportführer" as such is not exclusive to military terminology.)
