Until his death in April 2007 Barry Froggatt ran his own Website. That site included a number of sections, one of which was devoted to the 7M9 (49th) Entry. At the request of Barry's son, Paul, data was extracted from Barry's site and added to this (previous) RAF Cranwell Apprentice Association Data.

49th Crest

In August 1944, 60 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 7M9 (49th) Entry to train as Ground and Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 5 from Senior Entries, 6 ceased training, while 12 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 47 to Pass Out in July 1947.
