May we have the Watermark and Perforation Guage identified please?

The "R" may look rising, caused by the hand cut tail, being converted from the letter "P"
(Consistant on plates 46, 58,83,86, and 87. )

I found one I like for a match for the RF
Using only the example from the link above
And the help of rod narrowing down the plate numbers

I like the position of the check letters
The right star appears similar
I also like the weak frame on the east side of the NE star box

I don't like the thickness of the base of the R in the example
I'm not sure if the NW star is a match

I'm probably off, seeing this is new to me
I took a lot longer for the TA but I figured I'd guess
Plate 30

To the best of my knowledge.
This is a hammer code, to marry the individual hammer to it's usage in a particular location.

A small Post Office may have 2 similar cancellers ...A and B

A large Post Office may have a counter 40 feet long, and have 6 cancellers, A,B,C etc

As you may well imagine, the control and audit of postal cancellers is/was very important.
They may not be Alphabetical, or in sequence. Many are numeric.
(Commonwealth focus)

Some cancellers have what appear to be strange codes, these may indicate a Time code when cancelled.
(Alpha numeric)

The Bath Mail, would have been a very busy office. (Hence the number of hammers)
Part of the London - Plymouth mail route?
Connecting London with the Packet mail from Plymouth ?
