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 1938, 209 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 1J7 and 1M7 38th Entry to train as Instrument Makers (0J10) or Wireless Operator Mechanics or Wireless Electrical Mechanics (0M10). Because of the shortage of skilled tradesmen to meet the war requirements, the course length was reduced from 3 to 2 years and the Entry was renumbered as 0J10 and 0M10. The training for the 0J10 element was then further accellerated and they Passed Out in June 1940 as the 0J6's. The 0M10's Passed Out in October 1940. During training the Entry had gained 31 from Senior Entries, 6 ceased training, while 9 of their number were re-classed to later Entries.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
