Suppose by the lack of replies this is stumping the experts. I tried all the avenues to track it down but as of yet no ideas

It isn't the usual way that people working there were allowed to mark their individual work. Therefore, it might be a code for the stoneware body mix that was being used and marked to see how it fired compared with the usual stoneware body.

The problem is, its probably unlikely that we could provide you with much more information than you already have. Mulcheney standard ware was always very uniform, and this would have been a personal piece, and would normally have a personal mark. Probably by John Leach himself, as he was the one who who made the bigger personal pieces. I have had a similar looking one myself in the past.
But after that? Why it has no personal mark? The initials might possibly refer to a glaze code or a new style indication, but that would be speculation.
Where did you get it from? What size is it? Further details might possibly help.

I’ve not seen a mark like that before so I think glaze code is most likely

Usually clay body recipe mixes are denoted by an incised code and glaze codes are written on after glazes are applied i.e. not incised.
