92nd Entry news

The 92nd Entry joined the Royal Air Force in May 1959 as part of the N°1 Radio School at RAF Locking in Somerset, England. The three year intensive program of transforming teenagers into competent, adult members of the armed services engraved much more than a service number into the minds of those youngsters. Memories of our service and subsequent careers are kept alive during April reunions and friendships formed all those years ago still stand. Any help in tracing or providing news of those 92nd entry members that have not yet been contacted would really be appreciated. 

Please use the email link if you have any information, news or are indeed one of the 92nd yourself.

Roger Chivall's Documentary





The National Arboretum in Staffordshire is a year round centre of remembrance. It holds many tributes to our armed and other services and now has a monument to the Apprentices of RAF Locking. It was sponsored by the RAFLAA and unveiled at a service on Saturday 19th November attended by over 100 people including three from the 92nd.

The National Arboretum is a fascinating and moving place including an impressive monument with the names of nearly 50,000 servicemen and women who have died since the Second World War. It is well worth a visit.

These photos show a memorial sculpture, the RAFA monument and a few from the RAFLAA ceremony including our much more modest monument. The photo on this page shows the three 92nd who attended on behalf of the entry, Chris Lewis, Chris Tett and John Hall. To see more photos and/or a video, visit the RAFLAA website

Keep up to date with details of the next reunion.




One careful owner - not sure if it still runs though

Time to look to the New Year & that usually means a half marathon in March. Winter training needs luck with the weather but we all like a challenge, don't we?


Can you hold successive trophies in your hands awarded 42 years apart?
1973 Swanton Morley Inter station 5-a-side cup winners - our team had a lucky goalkeeper. On the other hand, 3rd place in the 2015 Philadelphia half marathon old codgers division. You might find Alan Marshall in the Guinness book of records one day.
If not, try the Foster's book.

Ian Huff's Woomera Walkabout pictures

Construction of Woomera Village began in mid-1947 to cater for thousands of people moving there as part of the Anglo-Australian Project. The project lasted for 30 years and saw Woomera become one of the most secret allied bases established during the Cold War. During its heyday (1949–69), the village population reached around 7,000 More...
