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 March 1946, 39 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 9M3 (52nd) Entry to train as Air or Ground Radio Fitters. During training they gained 16 from earlier Entries, 7 ceased training, while 3 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 45 to pass out in February 1949.
