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 January 1934, 65 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 6M12/6J12 (29th) Entry to train as Wireless Operator Mechanics (6M12) or Instrument Makers (6J12). During training they gained 4 from earlier Entries, 4 ceased training, while 3 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 62 to pass out in December 1936.
(It would also appear that some changed trades during training - note of April 2009.)
