This one I'm guessing South Vietnamese?

and finally this one says "Ex Coelis".
Any assistance is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Jon.

The top one is a early ARVN unit. Just can't remember exact id off the top of my head.

The 'EX COELIS' clutch-back is a collar badge from the Canadian Airborne Regiment 1968-1995.

I think I found something related to the second one: It looks like the crest of the Indian Nawanagar state.

Thank you! How on earth did you track that down?
I looked it up and you're correct. Nawanagar was a princely state in Western India. I learned something fascination when I was following-up on your identification: The Maharaja of Nawanagar hosted about 1000 Polish refugee children who had been deported to Siberia by the Russians (from "their" part of Poland after the invasion by Nazi Germany & USSR) and made it out via Iran after they were released by the Russians during the war.
Learn something new every day! Thanks.

Great story and awesome example of how a single act of a single person influences the relation between two countries for decades.
