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 1949, 50 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 63rd (2M9) Entry to train as Ground Radar and Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 7 from Senior Entries, 3 ceased training and 1 died. 2 were re-classed to a later Entry, which left 53 to Pass Out in July 1952. (The Apprentices departed Cranwell on the 28th November 1952, so the 63rd Entry were the last to Pass Out from Cranwell.)
