 Some people just like to counterstamp every coin they get - 

just to see if they ever get it back in change at some future time.

Given the date of the coin and, more importantly, the style of the countermark, it’s likely to be a mark of some military corp. I know of such WW2 countermarks from Canada mostly.

With a bit of searching I found these marks on lots of military things. Maybe it will help you look.
