Antique Drill Press - Unknown Brand

I picked this up a few days ago from a neighbor of a friend. I thought it was interesting but I have been able to find very little info about it. You can see in the picture that it is mounted on a bench top and the motor mounts separately. There is a small painted on emblem on the front but it is partially scratched off. From what I can make out it is "WAR... and "Dr" below. The drill, I believe was originally red, since has been painted over green. I have seen a old delta that was close to this one but I can't find any other info about it. If anyone knows anything I would really appreciate it. Thanks

Hi I have a similar drill press in the UK. Mine is made by RECO and marked with M M and A W S, 4012.
I suspect it was used by the British Ministry of Munitions during world war 1.
