The Apprentice Tribute

The 89th Entry Apprentice Association was formed some years ago to resurrect our links with the past. Over 90 of Lord Trenchard’s ‘brats’ who graduated with the 89th Entry have been located and most are members of the Association.

Ken Coburn is currently the Secretary/Treasurer of the Association. A Newsletter is published twice a year (in the spring and autumn) to keep members informed about what is happening to their colleagues. The Newsletter contains news of 89th Entry events, and other items of interest associated with the RAF apprentice scheme.

If you were a member of the 89th Entry, RAF Halton, and have not made contact with the 89th Entry Association, please contact the Secretary/Treasurer – select ‘Contact Us’ from the menu.
