Default CEF makers mark

I have this, to me, very fine specimen of an officer's pattern 7th Bn CEF cap badge.
My question concerns the makers details on a small oval bronze plaque affixed to the back at top centre. The first name is unclear ('.... & SONS. LONDON). My first thoughts were that it could perhaps be a Gaunt 's plaque but only 4 characters appear, unless one of the letters didn't strike well with the die. Either that, or am I missing something here?
