There are members only jackets, what about members only neckties?

Can I wear these ties if I'm not a member of the Legion?

My grandfather died recently and I ended up with a few of his ties. I've learned that a couple of them are the neckties worn as part of the uniform of the Royal Canadian Legion (he was a member).
I am not a member of the Legion and probably never will be. I would like to wear these ties as regular, everyday neckties but I'm not sure if that is acceptable. I didn't think to ask any of the Legion folks when I was down for the funeral and I can't seem to find anything online other than that the tie is an official part of the uniform.
Is there any reason why it would be considered improper or bad form to wear these ties as anything other than a part of the Legion uniform?
