Hi Ellie and welcome to the forum!

Jamaica issued war stamps from 1916 to 1919, and the 1.5d you have was issued either in 1916 or in 1917. I'm afraid the value for such stamps is rather minimal, say 10p.

But, there are different versions of the WAR STAMP overprint and there are also many errors in the overprint which could make your stamp more valuable.

Do you happen to have a scanner at home? If so could you scan the stamp and put the picture up here? If you don't have a scanner you may try and make a picture of it with a digital camera.

You can read how to upload pictures on these forum threads HERE.
