Interesting to see the two (maltese?) cross on the side. If you want to know more look up CW Cheney and co in Birmingham.

Here is a Infantry button from the Royal Italian Army- pre 1946, found in August 2017. It is steel backed so the back has seen better days.

Great find there, bought back memories. I remember having one of those badges when I was  quite young. From memory, the sails were a green colour.

The buckle is from a pair of Jantzen men's swim trunks late 1930's to mid 1960's, is the best I can do.
