Looks like the Parnaby's shared their service between 14th/20th and 13th/18th.
I've just searched the Hawk Journals and found 7 documents with 14 instances of Parnaby starting with H Parnaby in 1949 and also M Parnaby who left 14/20KH to become RSM of 13/18H. Also mentioned is Bandsman Parnaby (RSM Parnaby's son) who also transferred to 13/18H in about 1952
I'll look deeper shortly and give you more details.
