    21st army group GHQ troops for attached Royal Artillery troops, presumably 51st or 5/1st. You need to google them 21st army group and see which arty units were attached to them. Also used by 21st army L of C troops which again might include arty. Either way it would be very early post war I think.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
