I would read it as W.O. Model and probably is the name of the owner?

I think it's one of the many pretend military types - "War Office Model" sounds good but no official endorsement whatsover. Probably French made for the cheaper British market.

I agree Niall, in French specially were very tempted by the magic words "war, military etc" to encourage the civilian market  ;)
