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.

 

Thanks!

 

I took a guess on which way was up, go figure.

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

what, me worry?

Thanks Bodes for the link and info!
