I'm prepared to be shot down in flames but looks like a 18th-19th cent carpenters/woodsmans axe. The heavy construction and the depth of the markings tie it in with many similar. The marks will be a makers mark, a guild or fraternity and possibly a town or region. A guide to these would be jolly useful. I have a fair few of these, different shape, and they are usually N european, german areas. But they are all craft tools, not military.
Thanks Mark,that's very interesting
