The Fairey Battles of 142 Sqn, based at Andover seemed to have used this area for live bombing practice and machine practice (rear gunner) in July 1938. I am assuming this is a temporary use of War Office land to help crews practice taking off and dropping full calibre bombs, which in this case were 4 X 250lb GP. This is a "new" range to me as it does not fit in with use of the larger War Office areas like Larkhill.

Also of interest, to me at least, is the Porton Down's range was referred to as "Area K". Curious.
