Polish army badges

My brother in law has some modern Polish army badges and ranks. He got them from Polish soldiers in the time when he was a professional soldier. Can somebody tell me what kind of badges and ranks these are?

Re: Polish army badges

Sorry for not replying earlier, but I didn't notice this thread.
What I can identify:
1.Shoulderboards - rank: captain, for wz.93 field uniform ("pantera" camouflage)
2,3,4,5 - no idea, but 4 has asymbol of the chemical troops. I would associate them with the Civil Defense (blue colour typical for them). They are not army pathces.
6.Modern polsh eagle, probably sor beret, but no idea about who used it - this "S" is unusual.
7.Obrona Cywilna (Civil Defense) armpatch, probably 80's.
8.Cap badge of OC, probably introduced in the 70's
9.Armpatch of ground forces or air force - probably mechanic.
10.Parachutist badge - I have never heard of them being in the form of a patch, but probably they did exist. For field uniform, probably current model. 5 jumps? Not sure.
11.Doesn't look Polish - can't see what it is made of, but it can be soviet Civil Defense rank star. Red stars were never used by the Polish Army, as they were never accepted as any official symbol.
