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 May 1950, 83 young hopefulls arrived at RAF Cranwell as the 65th (3M5) Entry to train as Ground Radar, Ground Wireless or Air Radio Fitters. During training they gained 5 from the 64th Entry, 24 ceased training or remustered to other trades, while 22 of their number were re-classed to later Entries. This left 42 to Pass Out in March 1953.
(Queen Mary, Grandmother of reigning Queen Elizabeth II, died on March 24th and in respect the Passing Out Parade was without music. Due to rain the 'silent' Passing Out Parade was held in a hangar.)
