That wouldn,t be a representation of Neptune would it? Maybe a unit insignia,like British Expeditionary Force,Company_. Just a guess.

Yeah, I think it is not military but a company trademark design. I couldn't find out what, tho. The figure is odd, in a kilt, with a beard, and is either poling or oaring, or something. I thought Paul Bunyan, maybe, but haven't found him depicted in a kilt.

My second guess,some kind of logging activity.Some thing to do with some Scottish activity,like the games they have throwing cabers and such.I,m going way out there now,huh?
