WW1 Baghdad 1917 Ring

Classification: Query
Hi
I recently found a ring in my Grandmothers spare room. I am not sure what metal it is, but I believe it to be brass or something similar.

It is engraved with 'Baghdad 1917' with the symbol of the Ottoman Empire Flag above it.

In the box it reads

'W W Kemp & Co
Goldsmiths and Silversmiths
44, Stokes Croft
Bristol'

I have searched for this jewellers but have had no luck finding anything from them. I assume the ring was given to soldiers in WW1 following an offensive in Iraq (or the past equivalent).

Anything I can be told would be fantastic.

Thanks

Josh
