The 103rd Entry of Aircraft Apprentices from No. 1 School of Technical Training at RAF Halton did their training from January 1963 through to December 1965.
This website is a nostalgic reminder of the time spent during those years. The 103rd Entry has an active Association and has held a number of reunions. We also have our Entry Window in St. Georges Church at RAF Halton.
Hopefully this site will also be of interest to others who trained as Trenchard's "Brats", and to anyone with an interest in RAF Halton. The site has grown as people send in old photos of those days from January 1963 till December 1965.
As you will all know, we had a Reunion planned for July this year. After much discussion your Association Committee has decided to postpone the Reunion until the weekend of the 16th & 17th July 2022.
Even though the vast majority of you would have been fully vaccinated by July, we considered that it would have been irresponsible of us to go ahead.
The Government’s Roadmap out of lockdown is very positive but it contains too many uncertainties to give us any confidence that we would be able to have a successful Reunion.
There is also the possibility that restrictions will be implemented again in the autumn and winter as the Government considers the effect of the European 3rd wave and variants of the virus.
The Hotel had a couple of other dates available this year, but we decided that neither of them would be suitable. The Hotel has therefore kindly agreed to transfer everything to July 2022 – including the individual room reservations that have been made.
The Hotel will work on the assumption that you will want to retain your reservations, so if you no longer want your room booking then you need to cancel yourselves. Our deposit as well as all the originally agreed pricing and details have been carried over.
