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 1928, 50 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Flowerdown as the FLE14 Entry to train as Electricians or Wireless Operator Mechanics.
In August 1929, they moved to RAF Cranwell as the 1J (18th) Entry.
During their training, 2 of their number were re-classed to a later Entry and 2 ceased training.
This left 46 to Pass Out in August 1931.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
