Default HMS Malaya Mess Badge / Plaque?

Hello! I've seen this around a few times, but I can't find any complete information concerning this item. I did find it in this article though: https://www.nst.com.my/news/nation/2...ink-hms-malaya

It is a plaque that is affiliated with the Queen Elizabeth-class battleship Malaya.





Is this an item from the war or is it post-war for reunions? Any information about this plaque would be very helpful.

Thanks.

They are very decorative and I think you are probably right in your thoughts,
I have had minesweeper versions just in cast metal.

Kind regards Chay
