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 1947, 128 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 0M6 (56th) Entry to train as Air or Ground Radio Fitters. During training they gained 11 from Senior Entries, 41 ceased training, while 16 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 82 to Pass Out in May 1950.
