It's G43 H#, Tool Length Offset.
I believe it applies a Z axis offset equal to the tool length in the tool table.

Usually used with an ATC, or with fixed length tool holders.

hello  Gerry,

thank you for the reply.

i am clear about the G43H.

i only ask about the G43T because i found this in a example for ATC and have
no idea what is does, or should do.

It's not the correct format for G43, so I don't know what it would do.

It should always be G43 H#.

That like asking what would M6 H1 do.

It could be an old lathe command that is now defunct.
