I have come across the term "Group Practice Camp" a number of times in contemporary documents (eg 263 Sqn ORB). In the 263 Sqn ORB it refers to Group Practice Camp at Warmwell in September 1942. To my knowledge there were no practice camps for fighter or fighter bomber units at that time, only Coastal Command had formal Practice Camps in 1942 but at the end of the following year they did start to reappear.

At Warmwell in September 1942 there was 1487 TT Flight and many of the TT Flights ended up being absorbed into the reforming APC's.Could it be this flight that was referred to as the Group Practice Camp? If so did it operate on the same lines as the later APC's? Did it control the Chesil Bank ranges?

Martlesham heath was another location referred to as a Group Practice Camp.
