RN student Jet Provost training at Linton

It is acknowledged that all Royal Navy BFT training on the Jet Provost at Linton-on-Ouse ended in 31 July 1969, with the graduation of No.142 Course. However, in 1976 three naval fixed-wing students completed the course, two of which went on fly Sea Harriers in the Falkland conflict. Can I ask if there any other naval pilots who subsequently received similar training at Linton? Dare I mention 'Sharkey' Ward? TIA

Well, I thought latterly nearly all RN fixed-wing pilots went through RAF BFT. Certainly on the Tucano during the 90s and early 2000s there were many RN pilots completing what became BFJT on the Tucano before proceeding to Valley.
