Anyone ever see anything like these? I was told they were POW ID bracelets. They appear to be made from aircraft aluminum.

One is marked Wilson Marshall 1943. The other, Ruth Marshall 1943. I'm guessing if these are what they are supposed to be, that would be his wife and who to contact if he died. 

The last one I really have no clue on. 

Before I hear another "buy the item, not the story" let me just say these are not mine, I am helping a family member clear out his collection.

Thanks,

Jack

Thanks for the comments.
Any idea what the crest means on the last bracelet? It has the letters TYC on it.
