Does anyone know who wore this, or indeed whether it is a scout badge at all? I am of course hoping that it is a Group badge!

I believe this is a radar operators badge from the UK but the only ones I can find online have gold ligtning flashes and stars on them, not a silver flash.

This is a Royal Naval rating's branch or trade badge for, I think, a Radio Telegraphist/Operator. The lack of stars shows it was worn by a junior rating (Ordinary Seaman equivalent) who has not yet qualified for the next higher rate.
One star - qualified as Able Seaman equivalent
Star above and one below - qualified for Leading rate.
Crown above - qualified for Petty Officer

This is the badge of the Ruislip District Rovers.
One I don't have if you don't collect them!

The Gilwell books show this as a ribbon badge for Rover scouts. It is also shown ribbon in the IBC Rover publication. If it's bound, it is more likely to be first issue ED83/2.

UK/LNK 3 Diocese of London - Church of England

Linked external organisations

Worn by Church of England sponsored groups in the Diocese of London - 45mm wide, shiny red. What I was told many years ago was that it became a group badge - 42mm wide - matt red. Perhaps someone from London might be able to confirm this or otherwise.

4th Kenton St Mary's, a Church of England sponsored group in Stanmore District have always worn this badge. Currently it is worn as a scarf badge - you can see it on the scarf in a couple of photos on their web-site.

This is the Woodworker merit badge, illustrated by a chisel (diagonal) cutting into a block of wood (horizontal). I found it here: https://www.ebay.ie/itm/4-Irish-Scout-Merit-Badges-Catholic-Boy-Scouts-of-Ireland-Scouting/202276143999?hash=item2f1899037f:g:CV0AAOSwc5hav2O0
