The following was originally compiled by the RAF Cranwell Association,
and subsequently updated by ex-Entry members.
There could still be errors or omissions.

In September 1927, 55 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Flowerdown as the FLE12 Entry to train as Electricians or Wireless Operator Mechanics.
In August 1929, they moved to RAF Cranwell as the 0J (16th) Entry.
During their training, they gained 1 from the FL E10 Entry. This left 56 to Pass Out in August 1930.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
