Received these in a group of patches I think the Shoulder board with the Fouled Anchor and Crown is Australian. is the crown Austrailian also?   Any idea of the red shoulder tabs?

That Shoulder board strikes me as being Italian, the crown for one is not an English King's Crown, and seeing that the RAN wore British RN stuff. Does the button have English Hallmarks?

 

The Red Shoulder Straps, don't know origin of those.

 

The bottom one is definitely English, and may be the sleeve rank insignia for a Warrant Officer 3rd Class.

 

Here a Wartime example of the Printed variety.

Yes, US Artillery removable shoulder boards for the khaki cotton tunic.  These are hard to find when you are looking for them.

Seeing the back of the button to see what if anything is hallmarked on it is one sure fire way to tell origin.
