Subject: JACKSON of Gt. Torrington, 1916

I have a letter sent to my g-grandmother by her cousin in Gt. Torrington. The date is May 6, 1916, and it was written by someone in the family of John JACKSON, J.P., owner of the JACKSON Glove Factory.
The first page has an emblem of some kind, a forearm with a sword clutched in the hand. Underneath are the words "AUT PAX AUT BELLUM."
Was this emblem typically included in British stationery during those wartime years?
