No.1 Radio School

RAF Cranwell 1950 - 1952

In January 1950, 76 young hopefuls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 64th (3M1) Entry to train as Ground Radar or Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 2 from Senior Entries, 14 ceased training or remustered to other trades, while 6 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 58 to pass out in December 1952. (The Apprentices had relocated from RAF Cranwell to RAF Locking on the 1st December, so the 64th Entry were the first to Pass Out from Locking.)
