    Definately looks like a Fleur de Lys, or however you spell it. Might have been used by the military. Welsh Guards perhaps?

    A bit more useless info HERE :D

    Could it have been a Royal marine Band instrument ? or maybe a Vickers Band instrument that one of the many tradesmen at the yard added the engraving at a later date?

    Maybe it was one of a commemorative set presented to the band by the shipyard?

    Highams actually added another link to the origin of the logo here at the brass forum site.
