    This is what I've found from a quick google: an Oruba silver plate made by WALKER & HALL, Sheffield.

    "The business was established in Sheffield in 1845 by George Walker. Becoming an assistant of Dr. John Wright who had conducted important experiments on electroplating Walker secured the royalty of electroplating for Sheffield. The business was joined by Henry Hall and became in 1853 Walker & Hall. The factory was at Howard Street, Sheffield, while showrooms were opened in 45 Holbornn Viaduct, London. Branches were opened in Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Cardiff, Belfast, Hull, Bristol, Melbourne and Adelaide (Australia), Cape Town (South Africa). Walker and Hall was converted into a limited liability company in 1920 under the style Walker & Hall Ltd and combined in 1963 under the British Silverware Ltd with Mappin & Webb and Elkington & Co. DISRAELI SILVER, FLAG PLATE, ORUBA, PALACE SILVER, SONORA SILVER were some trade marks used by the firm"

    As for the front emblem / crest there's a discussion on eBay about the very same:

    Possibly a commercial shipping line piece. Military will usually have an arrow or a year. Maybe a ship leased as a troop carrier? which would explain their presence with military items.
