Welcome to the 82nd Entry of RAF Halton Apprentices Web Site.
The 82nd Entry were the first entry to be split up into all three Wings. This fact has been incorporated in the
Stained glass window,, dedicated and installed in St Georges Church RAF Halton. Where the three colours are
prominent. Many thanks to those members of the 82nd Entry, who generously contributed to the cost.
It has been said that the figure resembles a “BRAT” we knew as “TROG” aka Martin Harvey.
The photograph of the window was taken by Glyn Jones, who risked life and limb, hanging from a sky hook to
get the best result (well done Glyn) Our thanks to Mike Pond and Martin Harvey for being instrumental in the
starting of the 82nd reunions.

From the surplus to the funds suscribed by our members to the installation of our own window, we have sent a
contribution of £20.00 towards the costs of of the window dedicated to Sir frank Whittle.
