The change from BAOR numbers to the BFPO numbering system happened in 1957. This article compiled by JPW some years ago gives some insight: http://baor-locations.org/BFPO.aspx.html
44 HAA Regt RA were in Crerar Bks Oldenburg BAOR 25 from 1951 to early 1958?

Further to Pborn4's holding reply.
The changeover from the BAOR to the worldwide BFPO post code system started with the move of HQ BAOR from Bad Oeynhausen to Rheindahlen in 1952, according to my records Hilden/Mulheim was one of the last to change to a BFPO code in August 1958. At a later date BFPO 44 must have been reallocated to Dulmen and Hilden/Mulheim absorbed into the Dusseldorf based BFPO 34.
Regarding the Prix Le Clerc competition, there was discussion on this site sometime ago mainly in connection with the Royal Canadian Regiment entry. You might try RHQ Coldstream Guards in Wellington Barracks London for help (I was a member of the rival 2nd Scots Guards at the time).
