It looks like GRV, so 1910-36, give or take a year afterwards before they changed to GRVI.

Hi bc, couldn't find them in Cossum's 1900-1930, or 1930-42, they had the 6-pointed star until 1922, the rising sun until 1930, and then the ORs multi-flamed grenade, exactly the same as the artillery collar, until 1942.

Definitely pre-1936 when the AE was redesignated the RAE(M) so perhaps a proposal for new collars that got overtaken by events.
