Although incomplete the list can be seen here:

74th Entry Association. Known Active Members List.

The following list is not complete, may I ask members to inform us of their whereabouts so their names and Email addresses, if provided, can be added. If I've made any errors in the list or you wish to add an email address or other details please inform me. Email addresses have been written in such a way, with spaces between characters, that they cannot be harvested by SPAM idiots ie: ( j o e @ 7 4 t h. c o. u k ). So you can't just copy and paste them, because they won't work - you need to remove all spaces first.

The numbering is only for reference use on this page - and makes the list easier to read.

Stan Norris Sends the Following Info.

On page 5 of the 74th Graduation List dated 24/10/2009, you totalled 178 and asked what happened to the other 96?

Three names come to mind which I cannot see on the list probably because they didn't graduate or complete the three years.

A/A Busby - airframe trade I think, from Peckham, London but he opted out at the end of the first term.
A/A Tubby Sloane - armourer. He left about October/November 1955 as SAC and was posted to Wattisham. Once he got there he nicked my girl friend who lived in Ipswich!
A/A Brian Sugden - airframe. I don't remember him opting out or buying his ticket. He came from Margate where his family had a fish and chip shop.

Remembered Friends and Comrades.

There is also a list of remembered 74th Entry comrades..
