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 1946, 90 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 54th (9M9) Entry to train as Ground and Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 7 from Senior Entries, 6 ceased training, while 6 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 85 to pass out in September 1949.
