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 1933, 60 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 6J (28th) Entry to train as Instrument Makers (Class 9), or Wireless Operator Mechanics (Classes 1, 2 and 3). The Entry Representative (Jim Wilson deceased) remembered one of their number "dropping out" but could not recall his name or why he stopped training. He is therefore not included in the listing below. During their training 2 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 57 to Pass Out in July 1936.
