The first one looks like a female Malay Baron (Euthalia monina monina)....and the last one is definitely a female Horsfield's Baron (Tanaecia iapis puseda)....

Buttlover, Simon, I doubt #4 is T. iapis, note the arrow markings in the cells are pointing in the opposite direction compare to BMP :pdr:
