    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? (see comments about Barrow Shipyard band)

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