Default Crossed arrows and silver base but what is it ?

The top of the enamel shows the crossed arrows and there are three symbols underneath that I can't make out what they are meant to be.
The base plate is hallmarked silver.
I don't think it is military but can't find it after ages spent googling.
Any help appreciated
Thanks
BrianL.

Hi BrianL, welcome to the Forum. Your account is active and open for posts. Hopefully, the membership can identify your pendant. It appears to be sweetheart type jewellery.

may be a watch chain fob. The 3 wheat sheafs may suggest a Sheffield connection.

Nothing particlularly military about it.

Thanks everyone, all really helpful.
Certainly Sheffield linked but no inscription on the back, a nice solid piece.
Cheers

Sometimes see these as "tribute" or "welcome home" medals. The town or city crest is used but affixed to a gold or silver "dangler".

Vaughton & Sons seem to have cornered the market on these but Gaunt also got a fair share of the pie.

I have a WW1 one for Newcastle Emlin (Wales) with a scene of the castle depicted and then the reverse engraved in Welsh.....

Have had it translated but sadly it just comes out as, more or less: "In recognition of the good work done for the mother country 1914-18"

No name of an individual.
