I thought I had a better resolution pics of WT333 with the 2ATS badge taken at Darwin, but I an unable to located it at the moment. Here a smaller photo of the same air frame. From memory, the Canberra had photo reference shapes (diamond and triangle) under each wing.

WT333's badge is definitely that of 2ATU and not the one I am chasing.
I think I have cracked it...I am fairly sure the letters are an abbreviation of Apprentice Training School.
WRE had one based out of Salisbury in South Australia and "APPRENTICE TRAINING SCHOOL SALISBURY" seems to fit the proportions of the blurred blocks of text arranged around the ATS at the centre of the logo on the two images I have.
Again many thanks to all for their knowledge and assistance.
