L R B is the London Rifle Brigade. Until 1937 it was 5th (City of London) Bn the London Regiment (London Rifle Brigade). It then became a TA battalion of the Rifle Brigade. Gazette entry for your man's promotion to Lt is at Viewing Page 5542 of Issue 34317. Newton Dunn had associations with the regiment see http://www.gutenberg.org/files/25932/25932-8.txt. At one time serving in the regiment and later on the committee of the regiment's mutual aid fund. Hope this gives you a start.
