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 1939, 595 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 1J9 and 1M9 (40th) Entry to train as Instrument Makers (1J9), Wireless Operator Mechanics or Wireless Electrical Mechanics (1M9). The Instrument Fitters all transferred to RAF Halton in August 1940 to complete their training, but because of the shortage of Instrument Fitters, their course length was further reduced and they were retitled the 1J6 (40th) Entry Passing Out on 18th June 1941. The Cranwell 1M9's Passed Out in September 1941.
During their training the Entry gained 18 from earlier Entries, while 34 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. Thus 597 Passed out.
No less than 140 (over 22%, or almost a quarter!) were killed While On Active Service, including two as Aircraft Apprentices still under training.

This page has been revised from that which was presented on the Cranwell Apprentice Association page, with a number of missing names added, and it did not include those who had Died While On Active Service but their Cranwell class had not been identified. Thus there are now four tables, each presented in alphabetical order.

In 1989 Tom Olliver (36th Entry) arranged a "nostalgia" visit to RAF Cranwell for the September. As this would be almost 50 years since the 1M9/1J9's started at Cranwell, it was an occasion not to be missed. Thus ten members of that Entry, with their ladies, stayed the weekend at a hotel in Grantham and joined the Cranwell party. The get-together was such a resounding success that ever since further reunions have followed. At each RAFCAA AGM they stayed the weekend at a hotel in the vicinity of the venue, and each Springtime at various places such as Ironbridge, Bournemouth, York and Ross-on-Wye, etc.

Over a number of years close contact was kept with compatriots of the Halton 40th Entry Association. This culminated in September 1999 with a 60th anniversary dinner in Cannock when the Halton 40th Association disbanded, while the Cranwell 1M9's (40th) continued.

The 1M9's layed claim to being the first, and longest running, of the RAFCAA Associations.

Course 1J9 - Instrument Makers.
Transferred to RAF Halton August 1940.
