    It's hard to say without a picture, but the 51/1 could be a serial number for the unit. If it is, it would be a Canadian unit, all of which had the /1 suffix.

    Here are the pictures.Could it be 51st Highland division?As you can see there are two different names on it.There is a makers stamp but this is very faded.

    Assuming it is ww2 or earlier, it's a Grenadier Guards number... so probably not 51st Div.
