Help needed identifying WWII RAF badges
« on: Sunday 17 September 23 23:42 BST (UK) »
A friend of my mum's left her a lot of stuff when she died which I am gradually going through. Sadly she had no children to leave it to. Part of it was a few WWII RAF badges which I think belonged to her brother David McLew.
One I think is a cap badge and others are enamel lapel badges. The oddest one is a bar brooch or pin with what looks like a crustacean on it. Can anyone help identify them

I have tried several tmes to add photos of the badges but the system won't let me - it keeps saying there  is already an attachment when there isn't. I will try and add them to another post.

You have already identified the RAF cap badge yourself.

The two enamelled badges are WW2 Royal Engineers sweetheart brooches. The third one  I donít know.
