AAP = Aircraft Acceptance Park, ie a unit where aeroplanes were delivered from the manufacturer and then checked to ensure that they were satisfactory in all respects.

I hope that this helps

I think that I hadn't quite woken up when I wrote my earlier post. I should have mentioned that the unit was No 10 (Brooklands) Aircraft Acceptance Park, and that along with No 2 (Hendon), No 7 (Kenley) and No 8 (Lympne) AAPs, it was part of the RAF's South Eastern Area command.

Can anyone tell me whether AAP (Aircraft Acceptance Park) is technically a man's unit? Is there some smaller unit (squadron?) to which AAP personnel would have been assigned?

An Aircraft Acceptance Park was an RFC/RAF unit, just like an Aeroplane Supply Depot or any of the other administrative and logistic units that ensured that aeroplanes and men reached the squadrons.
