This'll be 'the elite that went before' as we graduated in June 1986 - missed the party again

It would help if they stopped re-numbering Courses all the time. I was on 172 IOT in '65


[Not at Cranwell, of course, but Sunny Feltwell]

Thanks. I was at Swinderby from November 1956 to August 1957 when we used to bump into Cranwellians in the Saracens Head in Lincoln

brakedwell asked:
When did the three year course end?
90 Entry was the last of the 3 year courses; the 2Ĺ year courses began with 91 Entry in October 1964 and ended with the graduation of 101 Entry in March 1973.

The first Graduate Entry was 1GE in September 1970, so for a brief period the Flt Cdt and GE schemes ran in parallel.

But in 1978-9 came the Henlow merger - and the RAF College 'went comprehensive' in the eyes of many...

Those we are still trying to locate

With just over a month to go to our reunion there are 2 members of the Entry that we have not been able to locate. They are:

Pete (PE) Dobbs an Engineering Officer
Adrian (AJ) Evans GD/Nav

If any one has any information on either of them that may help us locate them please PM me.

Thanks
