War Service

First called in on 6 Mar 1941, but as he farmed 150 sheep and was a shearer, it appears that he was deemed to be in a protected occupation. On 22 Mar 1942 Norman enlisted in the Volunteer Defence Corps at Armadale, and was allocated to the 2nd (Fremantle) VDC Battalion. On 1 May 1945 along with the rest of his unit he was placed on the reserve.

Post War

During 1953 Norm married Margaret Lilla Fraser (1916 - 2002) in Perth. Margaret died on 13 Dec 2002 in Melville.

Electoral Roll entries: 1949 - 1968 at Byford, farmer; 1977 - 1980 at 9 Salen court, Ardross
