Default King George Fork Research help

I've obtained a King George fork, however am having issues finding anything about the previous owner, can anyone help?

The fork being King George is 30''s?

A stamped number on it I see W124168143, could this be a Royal Army Service Corp service number as it starts with 1? However what's the W referring too?

It has a symbol on the rear and use under that, any ideas?

Any help is appreciated.

Hi,
I have my Grandfathers similar fork with his service No. from WW1.

Yours was made by Richard Groves & Sons of Sheffield. They adopted the trademark USE. and were in business from the 1870's
