If you haven't got it already, you would be interested in Lon 101's published unit history '101 Up!'. Your father is listed as being of No.3 Relief, 'B' Troop.

Default 101 battery badge

I bought a Cambridgeshire BD with "CAM 101" plus F/S cap which had a normal Cambridgeshire cap badge on it, no sign of any Royal Artillery badges, only A/A Command formation sign.

not very helpful Peter but here is a picture of the Wallasey HG Z Battery . Do you know the former militaria dealer Fred McEneany ... he was in this battery as a teenager, maybe he would remember or have some pics. ...

Thanks for letting me know. I don't have a copy of that and understand it is quite rare and expensive. I will keep looking though.

I'd never heard of these rocket batteries before but here are photo's of one and a rank of single tube ones.

RAD,

Thanks and apologies I have only just seen your post. I do remember Fred but I last saw him many years ago.

Peter

He is alive and reasonably well Peter , but he doesn't attend militaria fairs any more . I seem to remember he told me that he was interviewed for a local book on Wallasey at War and had let the author copy some of his pictures of when he was in the HG.
