The following was compiled by the RAF Cranwell Association.
There may be errors or omissions.

In September 1947, 83 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 57th (0M9) Entry to train as Ground and Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 14 from Senior Entries and 14 of their number were re-classed to later Entries or ceased training. This left 83 to Pass Out in September 1950.
