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 June 1946, 58 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 9M5 (53rd) Entry to train as Ground and Air Radio Fitters. During training, 6 ceased training, while 5 were re-classed to later Entries. This left 47 to pass out in May 1949.
