Welcome to the web site of the 100th Entry of Aircraft Apprentices at the Royal Air Force No 1 Radio School, RAF Locking, from Jan '62 to Dec '64.
In January 1962, around 155 boys travelled to RAF Locking near Weston Super Mare in Somerset. All had recently left school and completed the Royal Air Force entrance exams to become Aircraft Apprentices at the RAF's Number 1 Radio School and members of the 100th Entry. The following three years would be packed with bull in the billets, learning, exercise and social activities. Some would not make it to graduation, but the majority would qualify in one of the RAF's radio trades.
Much of this site is devoted to reunions and nostalgia with many pictures on the web site, in the photo gallery and discussions in the forum. Communication with site admin is through the contact pages; there is also a Guest Book to leave a message or introduce yourself. In addition, there are plenty of links to other sites which may be of interest to 100th Entry Members.
Over 140 of the original 100th Entry starters (approx 160) have been accounted for so far, many of whom attended Reunions in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016 (there are many pictures on the web site). We know of a handful of original members who are no longer with us (identified in the Forum and Members page), but there are still around 20 people who are not accounted for, although we believe that a few of them do not want to be contacted. So, if you are one, or know of anyone else, please contact site admin ASAP.
Most of us are now retired and living in locations all over the world. The aim of this web site is simply to identify as many 100th Entry members as possible and, if they want to, put them in touch with the others. But in any case there are still lots of photos, anecdotes and memories from those days in the 60's to be going on with.
