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 February 1939, some 240 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 1J12 and 1M12 (39th) Entry to train as Instrument Makers (1J12), Wireless Operator Mechanic or Wireless Electrical Mechanics (1M12). 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 the 1J1 / 1M1 (39th) Entry. The Instrument Makers course was reduced even further and was now known as the 0J10 Entry and transferred to RAF Halton in August 1940 to complete their training. They then Passed Out in October 1940, while the 1M1 Entry Passed Out from Cranwell in January 1941.

The Entry List below, including the 8 FT'd to them from Senior Entries, is presented in alphabetical order:
