    Thanks guys!!! You're the best!! My books usually get me by, but they all lack on good info on the qualification badges and some of the rank. Some of them give a vague reference, but no image. I thought the star might be the driver badge as I ran across reference to it changing to a star, but it didn't say which star in the photo was the driver one and it doesn't tell anything about the qualification badges other than that is what they are! I don't find a lot of foreign insignia here, so I can't justufy better books, but even the net failed me this time, so I figured I ask the pro's!!!

    Hi, number 3 isn't a cap badge, its a sleeve badge.
    Possibly WW1 pattern for qualified bombers but i will check my books.
