"Qualitas non Quantitas"

Logoredone

Background

We are the 95th Entry of Royal Air Force Apprentices. 1960-1963. Airframe, Engine, Electrical and Instruments, and Armament Fitters. One of the smaller entry's at Royal Air Force Halton, our lack of numbers didn't effect our enthusiasm talent or achievements. Many of our members have gone on to to do great things in the wider world and local communities.

The "Ninety Fifth" was one of the smaller intakes of Halton apprentices. However, their lack of numbers didn't effect their enthusiasm, talent or achievement. Appropriately, the 95th Entry motto is Qualitas Non Quantitas - (Quality not Quantity).

On the 17th May 1960 120 young men aged between 15 and 17 arrived by various means at RAF Halton, the No.1 School of Technical Training for the Royal Air Force.

The 95th Entry of RAF Halton Apprentices, including two members of The Royal Rhodesian Air Force, had been formed.

Three years later on the 10th April 1963 the 115 graduates who had successfully completed their training said farewell to Halton and were dispersed around the world to further their careers.
