The 42nd Entry Telegs Association was established by Tony Williams and Roger Hubbard, both 42nd Entry Telegs, so that old friends could meet, chat about the old times and enjoy each others company. The first reunion was held in Stoke in 1995.
The Entry was part of the RAF Boy Entrants scheme which took boys aged between 15 1/2 and 16 1/2 into RAF Training for 18 months at RAF Cosford. The 42 Entry began its training in January 1961.
In the 1960's the cold war was in full swing and the RAF was in the forfront in providing a bomber force capable of delivering an atomic bomb. The Vulcan shown in the picture was such an aircraft. An excellent display documenting the cold war can be seen at the RAF museum at Cosford. For more info click here
