Gardner Spare Parts supply an oil for the Gardner 2uc gearbox; the link is http://gardnerspares.com/product/oil-reducing-gear-oil-hd130-5-litre/
I am not sure of the grade of this oil, but it is likely to be a high viscosity monograde.
To find out more; contact Marine Engine Services and purchase one of their reprints of the original Gardner publication No 44.4 which covers all aspects of the gearbox. The link is http://www.marinepowerservices.co.uk/gaskets-seals/product/p2uc-gearbox-instruction-manual/related_product-167
