 Entry Representative: Dave Mann

 This Web Page has been raised by the Webmaster, initially based upon data held in the RAF Cranwell Association Database then modified based on advice from the Entry Representative.

 

In February 1935,  197 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 9J12 and 9M12 (35th) Entry to train as Instrument Makers (9J12) or Wireless Operator Mechanics or Wireless Electrical Mechanics (9M12).   Because of the shortage of skilled tradesmen to meet the war requirements, the course length was reduced from 3 to 2 and 3/4 years and the Entry was renumbered as the 9J9 / 9M9 (35th) Entry.    During their training they gained 13 from Senior Entries,  20 ceased training, while 12 of their number were re-classed to later Entries, leaving 178 to pass out in September 1939.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
