Regret having to inform you that Norman Powell died on 8 March 2013.  At his funeral on Thursday, it was related that he was shot down in 1941 when flying Hamdens on No 106 Squadron and became an POW until the end of WWII.

Another of our members, Eddie Gurmin and also 92 years of age, was also shot down on a different raid that day in 1941 and ended up in the same POW camp.  Not only that, they became near neighbours in South Wales!
