    Were they a donation to the Legion for display?

    No they were given to me. Although they were given to me on the promise that i would add them to my rememberance day display i put on at our branch. Sadly our branch dosen't have the space, funds or facilities to display these kinds of artifacts. I have set up a small space for photos ( witch are often donated to us) to be displayed but even that has proven to be a challange.

    Nice hats! What exactly do you mean with a zombie? Some sort of person who was on the list but never did serve?

    Zombies were draftees during world war 2.

    I think you could add that they were draftees who didn't volunteer for general service.
