If it is a G the only unit that makes any sense is the South African School of Gunnery.

For what it may be worth, C.J. Labuschagne would in most cases very typically stand for Casper Jeremia(s) Labuschagne - a family branch that often originates in Natal and the Free State south of Bloemfontein. This is not a hard rule, but a reasonable clue as to origin.
