The Cranwellian Association at a glance

Honouring the name of the RAF College Cranwell, the world’s first Air Academy and spiritual home of the RAF, the Cranwellian Association is a registered charity for all RAF Officers, whether serving, retired or reservist.  Members’ training backgrounds range from the original Flight Cadet, OCTU and Aircrew Officer Training systems at RAF Cranwell, RAF Henlow and RAF South Cerney respectively, the College GE system of the 1970s, to the modern day Single Gate IOT courses for all Officer branches of the RAF and its Reserves.

The highlight of the year is the Annual Reunion, at which members from all these backgrounds and eras reunite in the splendid setting of Cranwell’s College Hall.

AIMS AND ACTIVITIES

The aim of the Cranwellian Association is to inform and connect members, and to celebrate the history and heritage of the RAF and the Royal Air Force College in particular.

TO INFORM

This website is an excellent conduit for those seeking to know more about RAF Cranwell. It includes the Cranwellian Historical Society, College Alumni, and specific items such as the College Journals, monthly features and the latest news.

TO CONNECT

Every year we organise a reunion for our members at RAF College Cranwell. This is a weekend occasion that includes (gentle!) sports, a fly past and a formal dinner. In addition, members are encouraged to contact the Membership Secretary if they want their contact details to be given to selected colleagues, for example, fellow Course Students.

TO CELEBRATE HISTORY

In our Centenary year 2020 we installed the Trenchard Memorial at RAF Cranwell, a statue commissioned by the Cranwellian Association, funded by donations from members, private individuals and defence-related companies.  The statue was formally unveiled by the current Lord Hugh Trenchard on the 7th August 2021.
Looking ahead, we are also formulating plans to work with other organisations with a similar focus on heritage and history of the RAF.
