Hi,
I think L R & S of Sheffield has not been identified so far.
Yes, they were active in the forties.

This X is 1965. As AG2012 says we don't yet have an identification for LR&S.

Thank you for your help and your time. Why do you think it is 1965? In all of my books, it says it is 1940.

Note the san serifs on the 1965 mark.
