Had a pleasant afternoon with the wife of former F/Lt Peter Piper DFC yesterday and while there had the privilege to view Peters three Logbooks? Given my previous posts I was keen to clarify the 7 Squadron ORB entry “ Posted to 3 Group Conversion Flight”. It transpires that on conclusion of Peter’s time with No.7 (B) Squadron he was posted on October 15th 1941 to the “Stirling Conversion Flight RAF Waterbeach" . Peter's Log Book entries are specific recording his time with "Stirling Conversion Flight" until January 1942 when the flight become No.1651 C.U.

I can therefore only conclude that the original entry was a typo and should have recorded his posting to a “ Stirling Conversion Flight” and not “No.3 Group Conversion Flight”. Another little puzzle solved.
