 This Web Page has been raised by the Webmaster, based upon data held in the RAF Cranwell Association Database.   We are only too aware that the RAFCAA Database contains errors and omissions and therefore we earnestly request your advice to correct any mistakes or insert any omissions in the following data.

 

In February 1939,  some 240 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 1J12 and 1M12 (39th) Entry to train as Instrument Makers (1J12), Wireless Operator Mechanic or Wireless Electrical Mechanics (1M12).   Because of the shortage of skilled tradesmen to meet the war requirements, the course length was reduced from 3 to 2 years and the Entry was renumbered as the 1J1 / 1M1 (39th) Entry.   The Instrument Makers course was reduced even further and was now known as the 0J10 Entry and transferred to RAF Halton in August 1940 to complete their training where they passed out in October 1940.   The 1M1 Entry passed out from Cranwell in January 1941.

The Entry List below, including those FT'd to them from Senior Entries (8), is presented in alphabetical order:
