    Hello Forum

    I recently had a chance to pick up two Services Offered Not Accepted pins, but all my rooting around has not found me much information about these. That's where you come in. Does anyone have any info on these? I assume they were given to people who had tried to sign up, but for whatever reason could not. I assume this could then be worn by them so people would not assume they were avoiding the War.

    I guess I have a few questions. Firstly, are they Canadian? They were made by Jackson Bros. They look a lot like the CPF or CEF pins. Were they part of the CPF. Were they supplied by the Government? The two I have are engraved with a 3 digit number in the middle, one is 412, the other is 459. What do these numbers represent? How rare are these. I can' t seem to find much of anything on these.

    Appreciate anything you can offer. Thanks for your time.

    I can't help, but it's interesting to compare it with this one for service at the front.
