Here's a guess: fresh water feed for a trailer-launched lifeboat engine?

The Sidmouth Lifeboat's current Optimaxes have a hose fitting about half-way up the back of the leg, which is somewhat similar: https://www.flickr.com/photos/41851332@N03/5521762279

Your OBM is an ex M.O.D OBM. That bit in the picture is a water inlet to the water pump, so the OBM could be started on the trailer on dry land and be launched at full throttle if necceary. There should be a plug in the end of it, if not it will need a plug before you use it.
