The Mail Opening Unit anybody? The upper part of the handstamp looks like “ROYAL MAIL LONDON SOUTH”

At a guess I'd say it's a handstamp used by the section that opens mailbags coming into the office to get the letters ready for sorting, and is used on stamps that have missed cancellation? Can't think of a better explanation!
