It is actually Divisional Support Regiment, which did at one point in 1945 include the three units you mention, the DofE/RLI was formed in 1943 and the Transvaal Scottish was subsequently merged to form the new battalion, which was known as the Divisional Support Regiment.

I guess DSR stands for Dukes, Scots and Rands but I am sure somebody will know better. thank you in advance for your knowledge, gents!
