The one on the top right is the AAA (Anti Aircraft Artillery) Southern Defense Command, and it's upside down in the photos.  Can't help on the others.

 

Nice finds.

The two 91st Division patches are US made. The style is know as "liberty loan" patches.  They were made in the US just after WWI.

Here's a thread with a couple of boxes with the same stock number as yours.....They are called out as 1947 dated or later....As with a lot of military items, the contents were left over from WW2.....Bodes

Hello

The 'Bas-Rhin" title is a French 1935-40 shoulder insignia for Maginot Line troops, worn on going out dress. The dark blue letters on a red background indicate enlisted men of artillery units, in this case the 155th Fortress Artillery Regiment

"Bas-Rhin" is the geographical sector, on the lower course of the Rhine

Hope this helps
