This shape was glazed and monogrammed in a variety of ways and is most often referred to as the NZR cup:
The armed forces had to eat 100_1310

Inverted handleless cups can still be seen serving as insulators on power poles in West Auckland.

This pattern also appeared on a small souvenir dish (butter/pin?) which came boxed with an explanation of the design:
The armed forces had to eat 100_1718

It was on a range of flatware. It's clearer in this shot which is closer to the actual colour:

Tony is this the Australian Army badge?  I have found the number is d508.
There is also Australia Airforce d556, but I'm not familiar with these badges.

As far as I know this badge is the Australian army Rising Sun badge. I'll try and track down a web site with examples of the various military badges here.
