unidentified naval badges

good morning, I've probably put this in the wrong forum but as I don't know which fleets these badges belong to, I thought I'd start with a general request.

Can anyone recognise these badges?

1 is a small penant within a wreath, another shows a Merchant Navy type cap badge but with a pale blue background and the last one, again a Merchant navy type cap badge but showing an ugly mermaid , looks a bit like my mother in law wearing flippers but that is probably coincidental, on black.

any thoughts? (not about my mother in law but on the badges)

many thanks, dave
