    Default Lincoln B2 SX984 Crewmans name ?

    Hello,
    Am seeking the correct name of a crewmember of Lincoln B2, SX984, of 49 Squadron, lost on 19th February 1955.

    In Colin Cummings "To Fly No More " on pages 112 & 113 details of SX984's loss are given including the name that I am seeking confirmation of.
    BARTLETT, Stanley Albert George Sgt.(A/G).

    However in Nick Van Der Bijl's book "Mau Mau Rebellion " The airmans name is given as -
    BARTLETT, Sgt Stanley.

    It is also given as Stanley here -

    https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/25865

    Details given on this website are from a relative it seems.

    So I wonder if in fact there was actually two crewmembers named BARTLETT on board when SX984 crashed, which would give us seven crew instead of the six names given ?

    Or where did Colin get the name he gave in his book ?

    Many thanks Col, clears up my doubt about the extra man. There was only the five.
    Thank you.

    Thank you Col,
    My typo( now corrected) due to the late hour when I posted .
    I thought that there may have been two Bartletts on board but now sorted.
    Many thanks for your swift responses and also for the links.
    Stay safe and well,
    Alex in a very warm Falmouth.
    115 degrees Fahrenheit in my front porch yesterday, think that's around 47 degrees Centigrade :)
