Help - Advice required please
While looking at my father and grandfather's war medals recently I found this piece of memorabilia and have no idea where it came from or what or who it represents. If anyone can tell me I will be grateful.

At a guess the globe shows the North and South American continents focussing on South America, and the anchor seems to indicate a navy. Does the eagle represent the United States? I wonder if it could represent the US Merchant Navy? Or perhaps the navy of a south American country?

Help from readers will be appreciated.
