Default Metal Identifaction HELP

My dad served in the IDF. He was a captain in the paratrooper brigade. Could someone please help me identify the bottom two metals in the picture attached? Also could someone please tell me about the insignia next to them. I am missing his jump wings. He had bronze jump wings with a red background could someone please inform me to where i could buy them also.
Thanks in advance

The "bars" on the top are a "Seren" or Captain.

Below them are 3 ribbons, I could be wrong but Yom Kippur, Lebanon and one other.

On the bottom row, the first pin is for those who served in Phantom jets, the middle one, what w ecall a "PAZGAZ" is a 6 month combat duty pin, and the bottom right is the logo of the Air Force, looks like a gift paperweight made out of a beret tag.

Nice collection, but probably not all related directly to your Dad's service.

Over the years the design for the jump wings, like the Air Force medalion have evolved. You would probably have to go to a collector or keep an eye on eBay.
For information about enlisting in the IDF please see our archives from the now closed web site:
