My late dad John King (575533) was in the 39th Entry and went to RAF Halton No 1 School of Technical Training - Apprentice School on the 17th January 1939. He has left me his photo album and notes on his subsequent career in the RAF and Fleet Air Arm until 1948. I am writing up his story and would be interested in tracking down any pals of his from the 39th Entry. I have put some of his pics on Flickr. Email me for a link as HTML not allowed on here.

Dad sadly passed away in July 2013.

Best wishes to all,

Tim King

I note that there is no mention of 213 Entry (1968/70)under the Entries tab....is this an oversight or is there another reason ?

Hello,

I work in the funeral profession and am currently doing a funeral at St Andrews Church, Hamble.
On their memorial to ex-pupils of TS Mercury is the name of Eric Mudie Hall.
After a search on Google, I found his entry in your Roll of Honour. You have the identification letters of 257 Squadron as "TM". These were introduced in the May 1941 revamp of Fighter Command codes. At the time of his death, 257 would have carried "DT".

Hope this is of interest,

Yours,
Shaun Morris

Just renewed my membership and read about the closure of RAF Halton. A very sad but inevitable event I suppose. We had a good reunion there last year and hope to return before closure.

Kind regards

Great site. I was with the other "lot" as a boy Entrant. Also still a member.
Reading the site tells me that time certainly flies.

I visited Halton as an Air Cadet in 1951 and spent a week there getting in summer camp the feel for joining.

I eventually joined as a boy in 1953 and would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Thanks for letting me on the site.

Hello, on researching my grandfather's WW2 experience it has come to my knowledge that he attended the Number1 school in 1926. His name was Bertram Aylmer Perkins.He was also at the 4 (apps) wing?. I have a photo of him in the sargents mess with 20 other personal in 122 squad in Ellon 1944. Would love to learn more about his apprentiship experience. I have some basic records but I don't understand the numbering etc.
