    Default LAC M J Sullivam

    G'day Chaps

    I have an L.A.C. M. J. Sullivan R.A.F.V.R. killed on the 6th of July 1943 while at No. 12 E.F.T.S. in Goderich, Ontario. He was supposedly killed in the crash of a Tiger Moth. Sullivan was 28 years old when killed. Is this a little old for ab initio pilot training? I have all the crash cards from the B.C.A.T.P. in Canada and his name does not show up. There are two M. J. Sullivans but neither of them were killed. Nor is his name in R.A.F. casualties section of 'They Shall Not Grow Old', but is listed in the C.W.G.C. site. Any ideas?

    Cheers...Chris
