    I thought it was possibly Indian at first, but the Logo at the top is very similar the one used by Siam.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Not necessarily for artillery, as the guns are inverted (passive, rather than aggressive), so probably represent captive arms.

    Could well be Thai, or then known as Siam. The symbols at the top look very much like Thai Royal crown and the elephant was the main symbol on the flag of Siam. In the late 1800's Thailand was modernizing it's military influenced by European traditions, hence the odd East meets West symbols.
