Hello.
I have looked through my copy of Cecil Smyth Jr. privately published book "Insignia Of The Republic Of Vietnam Armed Forces" and have found one match. The first one you lit is from the Territorial Forces of Vietnam, unfortunately that's all the information it had,I also believe the second is also from the Territorial Forces.

Thanks for your input. I have the top one (snake) tentative ID's as 103rd RF Bn. and do believe the 2nd one is also a RF Bn. unit. But which one ? I to have Smyth's Vietnam booklets,but have found different printing dates, have additional information in them. So not always shown in the edition you have.

The "Xa Vuong" patch is that of Tieu Doan 103 DPQ in Quang Ngai.
The three arrows are the early badge of the ARVN's III Corps.
Can't help with the others but the last may be CIDG.
