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

Due to the outbreak of war Aircraft Apprentice training was reduced from 3 to 2 years. The Entry were initially known as the 0M12/0J12 Entry, but because of the reduction of course length, were renumbered as the 0M4/0J4 (37th). Entry training ran from just April 1938 to April 1940 and it was for Wireless Operator/Electrical Mechanics and Instrument Makers.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
