    Default P/O S.A. SULSH 180 or 190 Squadron?

    Hello,

    Pilot Officer Samuel Alfred SULSH (56536) was posted onboard Stirling IV LL930 L9-'A' of 190 Squadron, captained by Wing Commander Bunker DSO, DFC*, which crashed on 20 April 1945 only 4 minutes after its take-off.
    W/C Bunker didn't flew this day with his regular crew.
    F/S Baley, W/C Bunker's regular Flight Engineer was onboard as passenger.
    The 7 men were killed.
    Pilot Officer Samuel Alfred SULSH is the only member of this crew who is mentionned (on www.cwgc.org) as not being from 190 Squadron but Flight Engineer from 180 Squadron.
    Can somebody help me to confirm if P/O SULSH was from 180 Squadron or 190 Squadron?
    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Best regards.

    Sorry it didn't see that I wrote LL930 instead of LJ930 (thanks Henk!)

    Thanks very much John for your response.
    P/O Sulsh will so be added to the 38 Group Roll of Honour as a member of 190 Squadron.
    Best regards.
