Thanks, but don't think that 22 training group includes the Arrows

Have just looked at Orbat for 2008 for the Raf and they are classed as part of 22 Training group. the sub group is classed as The Central flying School, and they are based at Raf Scampton, but they are not listed as having a squadron number.

The info came from the Offical souvenier issue of the Royal Airforce magazine celebrating 90 years of the RAF.
