I 'think' dodie is right and wrong as the cap badge is indeed a chiefs and the branch badges are indeed a now defunct branch, however the crowns on all three are feminine crowns  :-* If a male is on the throne they would have points.
I'll put a pic of my chiefs hat on in a minute lol
Oh look! another arsehole ;-) (people watching the professional beggars round central station)
