Q22.04. 08 13238 Later D3238.

Harris, in his book, The Allocation History of BR Diesels and Electrics quotes the renumbering date for Cl. 08 13238 being renumbered to D3238 as 30 h August 1963. This seems extremely late with most of the class being dealt with in the 1950s. Can anyone advise if this is correct or quote earlier dates from their records? (Paul Chancellor)
