It would appear that the 21st regiment was at one point called Artists Rifles. I am not an expert though.

The 21 SAS is a Territorial Army battalion.

The only Regular regiment of the SAS is 22

Ok to put this to bed ....... The 21 SAS (Artists Rifles) was Based in the Duke of Yorks barracks in London (with one company and the HQ of 10 Para) and is a territorial battalion specializing in LRRP. 23 SAS was based in Scotland (I believe Edinburgh and Glasgow) it's also a territorial unit specializing in LRRP.

This info may be a little out of date as it's been a while since I had anything to do with either unit (I played OpFor/Hunter force a couple of times as a Reg Force Infantryman))
