    There is no way of knowing. As a rule, all military bugles were usually marked with the WD property stamp. Bugles were also made for many other user's - such as Boy Scouts and other organisations. A WW1 date doesn't make it a military bugle. But just to show the opposite side of the argument, I have a Henry Potter Fife which is in a 1916 dated leather case without WD stamps, but is known to have been used in a military band.
