Additional information found on the web, 99% certain that it is this loc:
If this photo was taken before 1954 then this is the Gloucester Regiment. Originally built as St. Donat's Castle, July 1932, it was renamed in April 1954.
It was withdrawn September 1962 and scrapped later at Newport.

As it has the 85B shed code for Gloucester Horton Road it is almost certainly The Gloucestershire Regiment 28th 61st.It was renamed to commemorate the regiments battle at Imjim during the Korean War and then permanently allocated to Gloucester.
The nameplate is in the regiments museum at Custom House,Gloucester Docks

Although the photo has been taken at an acute angle if you look carefully you can see that the depth of the nameplate is deeper than normal and is definitely "The Gloucestershire Regiment".I saw this engine on its way from Swindon Works to Gloucester the day the new name was unveiled.
