    War Service Pins

    Here is a pin I picked up at a local flea market last weekend. Ended up with two.
    Looks to be an interesting addition to the Service pins given to the men from the last 3 wars.

    Nice pin! These were given to volunteers (women) who worked for the Canadian Red Cross Society during WW2. I've got one from my Aunt.

    They originally came on a little square card which was marked STERLING at the bottom.
