Name:  Roger Collins

My father, Ronald Collins, joined rhe RAF on 27th June 1929 as an apprentice and as far as I can tell he would probably have been in the 20th Entry. I’m wondering if there is any information about him or the entry? His service number was 510693.
Many thanks

Name:  Julian Pegley

I was an apprentice at Halton in 1965 to 1966.
I was trained as a Nursing Attendant.
I played football for the station.
After I passed out went to RAF Wroughton.
I was in the 306 Entry

Enjoyed every moment.

My biggest regret is, as I now 70 years old I have no photographs of my fellow apprentices

Can anyone help

My grandfather was a trainee at Halton from 28.03.19 until 10.02.20 when he went onto Flowerdown. On his military record there is a red stamp with Census 31st Jan 1920 written on it. What does this mean? Can I access this information?

This is a message for all those who manage Entry websites.
I have been through most of the entry websites from selecting on the Entries Page of HAAA website and several Entry Websites do not connect or have an Error 404 meaning that website link is no longer active.

Could all those administrating their entry website please ensure the links are correct and working please.
Many Thanks

Flt Lt Ian James 'Jock' Muirhead DFC

am researching information concerning my late Uncle, Flt/Lt Ian Muirhead DFC who joined the RAF in 1929 in the 20th Entry at Halton as an aero engine fitter. His first posting was to 29 Sqd and then 151 at North Weald. After being commissioned he joined 605Sqd but was killed in action 15 October 1940. I would appreciate any information you have, in particular photographs of his early pre war years. I am constructing a Wordpress site to celebrate his life and the coming 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. You can see the work in progress at

Hi there,
my father Edgar Brian Watts born 17th April 1928 was a "haltonion RAF brat" of 48th entry 579744.

I regret to advise that my father passed away in Logan Hospital, Bethania, Qld, Australia on 12th December 2019. His last address was 103 Federation Drive Bethania Qld Australia 4205

Dad had many fond memories of Halton and his experiences, most of which he recorded in diaries.

Lots of mentions of life freinds Frank "Ferdy" Sowerbutts & "Skid" Gordon, to name a few.

We will be having a memorial service for him on 10th January 2020 at the Bethania Lutheran Church.

If any one wishes to send cards etc in remembrance, please send to my self at:

178-188 Redwood Circle
Jimboomba Qld Australia 4280

phone: 0755477352
mob: 0407848109

Warmest Regards
Fred Watts (proud oldest son of Edgar Brian)
