OK - So the mathematical definition is a group closed by transposition of
other members of the same group. 

But in that case FCHs are closed transpositions at one remove, or inter-group
relationships i.e. they are mutual transpositions of a closed group (namely
the 7 leadheads of a plain course). If you transpose any leadhead of the plain
course by any leadhead of a false course, you always get a leadhead of another
false course of the same group.

14263857 (member of the plain course)
17856324 (member of FCH 143256)
15738246 (member of FCH 123654)
