Post 1942 the machine gun regiments in both infantry and armoured divisions were '64' (on black). '47' appears as an artillery number (on red over blue) in infantry divisions. Perhaps they were this from the first introduction of these flashes on arriving in England in 1940.

I don't have the full chart but '47' on black was used by the Royal Canadian Dragoons when they were attached to the 5th Armoured Division in 1941 as their armoured car regiment, and wore the same '47' for a time when they were assigned to the 1st Corps before adopting the later '44' on green over blue.
