    Hello, I think these are Turkish badges.

    Hi there,

    I don’t think they are British because of the shape of the crown on the two ‘brass’ badges, also that isn’t English writing on the badge with the tank.

    All three to me have features that remind me of various Asian military forces, especially with the style of the crowns, the star and the wreath.

    Sorry I can’t be of any positive help, but this might jog the memory of someone who knows.

    Thanks for the challenge. Ethiopian I think, language is Amharic, top one would be Pioneer Corps or something similar, middle Navy, bottom one Armored or Tank Corps.

    Middle one I would say more modern because of the loss of the crown and the addition of the star.

    Quick search came up with this link
