Default CRA batteries serving with 3rd Can Inf Div

I was just wandering if anyone can help me out with what batteries served with what Field Regiment with 3rd Div.

13 Can Field Regiment, RCA seems to have the following units:
33 battery, RCA
44 battery, RCa
78 battery, RCA
33 LAD, RCOC
according to their war time record as publishedimmediately post war under the title 13 CRA Field Reg.

Now I would like to know what batteries served with 12th and 14th Field regiment RCA. Also would not mind knowing about the LAA batteries from the LAA regiment serving with this division (4thLAA?)

5th LAA had 41, 47 and 88 batteries under command.

BR,

Rob
