Default Toronto Scottish maker mark

Here is an unusual maker mark, at least for me. It appears to be SERVICE SUPLY LONDON. What era would this be from, I am guessing WW2 but I have not seen this maker before.

Unusual maker mark. Brooker's reference suggests early issue (1920's), but I think early Second WW would be more accurate. Perhaps one of our British members knows when Service Supply moved from Rochester to London.

Thanks Phil. I am not 100% convinced that the Service Supply badges were made during the Second WW. Service Supply was in Rochester during the FWW and I am not sure when the company moved to London.
