    Ribbons are European African Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, Victory Medal and the Army Occupation medal.

    I cannot ID the Distinctive Unit Insignias. There are hundreds of designs of these. Google the Mottos.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The last one certainly looks masonic & the inscription "In hoc signo vinces" certainly fits with that as it was originally used by the Knights Templar and along with many of their rites has been adopted by the Freemasons - as Ade says Google will probably bring up load more info.

    That last medal/fob comes from the Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF), which is a fraternal organization. Notice the IOOF on top of the tent? They have some similar symbols on their home page: Independent Order of Odd Fellows
    I have no idea what it is for or repsresents, though...
