Welcome to the 44th Entry Web Site.

On or about September 27th 1961 over a thousand boys
travelled from all over the country, indeed some from British military bases abroad, to
RAF Stations Cosford, Hereford and St Athan to begin training in their chosen
disciplines under the Boy Entrant Scheme as members of the 44th Entry. After 18 months
intensive training they were then posted to their first operational units and eventually
served all around the world with great distinction during the dangerous period of the
Cold War. Many went on to achieve Senior NCO rank and some were also commissioned.
However, none forgot the fact that they were Boy Entrants and belonged to the Glorious
44th Entry. This site is dedicated to finding as many boys as possible so as to provide
a base around which they can trace past comrades and reminisce over past events in true
comradeship and, should they wish, join the
RAF Boy Entrants Association.
My grateful thanks go to all the many members of the
Glorious 44th Entry who have contributed stories, photographs and memorabilia for use on
this site. Copyright to all photographs remain with the originators.
