Can anyone identify this WW2 lanyard please?

I thought initially it belonged to the AGC (Adjutant General Corps) but their colours were Twin Red and Twin Black where as this Lanyard is Single Red and twin Navy Blue.

The cords are twisted, just so you know.

Any help appreciated.

dcdl12976 - I would say you are absolutely correct, what a good find!

How the heck do you manage to get to this info as to where it might be, I try and usually after hours of trawling through various sites I get nowhere - again I take my hat off to you sir.

many thanks

depends which search engine you use as in all things some are miles better than others. Also depends on the search term you enter for instance just entering lanyard will bring up a load of non military work lanyards entering military lanyards will help cut these out and entering red and blue lanyard helps as well. The rest is pure luck and checking the sites that come up

dcdl12976 - just following on from this info below which I recently came across on the net - the info is no doubt all correct 'but' the Lanyard I have is supposedly a Lanyard which dates from a lot earlier in time (circa 40's/50's) and if you notice it has the old brass fastening end on it whereas the later Lanyards had a later type of clasp/fastening.
Given that this info states the AGC was formed on 6 April 1992 it casts a bit of doubt if this Lanyard I have is now AGC? - (if you follow my drift) - any ideas?

History
The Adjutant General's Corps was formed on 6 April 1992 from the Royal Army Pay Corps, the Corps of Royal Military Police, the Military Provost Staff Corps, the Royal Army Educational Corps, the Army Legal Corps and the Staff Clerks from the Royal Army Ordnance Corps.
At the same time, the Women's Royal Army Corps was disbanded and its members were transferred to other Corps of the Army, including the Adjutant General's Corps.

The new Corps consisted of four branches
Staff and Personnel Support (SPS)
Provost (Royal Military Police (RMP)and Military Provost Staff (MPS)
Educational and Training Services (ETS)
Army Legal Services (ALS)
On 5 April 1993 the clerks from the Royal Corps of Transport, The Royal Pioneer Corps and the Army Catering Corps were transferred to the Adjutant General's Corps on formation of the Royal Logistics Corps. On 1 July 1993, the clerks from all other Arms and Services were subsumed into SPS Branch.

The Military Provost Guard Service (MPGS) formed in 1997 and are part of Provost Branch

it often happens that things like this are taken from a regiment or corps that were amalgamated to form the new unit or even colours mixed to form a new lanyard
so maybe the lanyard origionaly belonged to one of the others you named the other option of course is that it is not as old as you think
