There is some confusion over the numbers used in 6 Airborne Division. Some sources suggest both Anti-Tank & Light Anti-Aircraft Batteries used 47.
On return to the UK in Feb 45, part of the Air Landing Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment was re-formed into 6 Air Landing Anti-Tank Battery which together with 3 & 4 Batteries formed 2 Air Landing Anti-Tank Regiment. This unit presumably then used the Arm of Service number 46.
