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 1943, 77 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 5M3 (46th) Entry, the last Entry to train as Wireless Operator Mechanics. During training they gained 15 from Senior Entries and 3 failed to pass out as WOM's. Thus 89 were left to Pass Out in September 1945 as the 5M9 (46th) Entry.

The Entry List below is presented in alphabetical order:
