    Default Any help with identifying an establishment?

    Dear All,

    I'm currently looking at a service record that has a posting to what looks very much like "CEB Reading". The posting was August 1941 and the person concerned trained as Observer and then redesignated as Navigator. The Reading posting followed time at SFTS.

    I have no idea what establishments were in Reading at that time, any ideas?

    Many thanks

    Shinfield Park, Reading was the home of HQ Flying Training Command throughout WW2. CEB? C could be for Central or Command. B for Board. But really I am in the realms of wild guesses.

    Cheers

    Many thanks for the reply Jim. Yes, it's a puzzle. It's written very clearly and I just have no idea! It appears to be a six month posting too.

    Central Examination Board maybe?

    I think that we are on the right track! My final suggestion is "Command Examining Board" of which he could have been a staff member.
