Default R&HB Kirkwood, Edinburgh Silversmith

Would anyone know the years of operation of the Edinburgh silversmiths and goldsmiths 'R&HB Kirkwood, 66-68 Thistle St, Edninburgh' whose maker's tablet appears on military badges, brooches, and accoutrements?

I have not seen the Kirkwood mark on any hallmarked badge past about 1912. I infer from this anecdotally that R&HB Kirkwood ceased doing business shortly before the Great War.

Would someone have precise knowledge as to when Kirkwood closed its doors?
