On This Day - Sgt N BRUMBY 607 Sqd
Fri Oct 1, 2010 5:34pm

Sgt Norman BRUMBY was from Yorkshire, there is some evidence that he may have been born in Bridlington but he was educated in Hull, firstly at Thoresby Street School where the picture was taken when our Society Plaque was presented by the Lord Mayor. I recall the lady was his sister.

He then moved to The Boulevard School, this was close to the Rugby League Boulevard Ground for Hull FC and as I was a pupil n the buildings towards the end of the war, I know that there was a Memorial Plaque to Amy Johnson in the Assembly Hall.

The Boulevard School moved to a new building and was named Kingston High and later became Sydney Smith School and I am trying to see if they have a war memorial with Norman's name.

He joined the RAFVR and was in the Hull Mess along with my brother and a number of Sergeants who became BOB men.
Sadly one was Charles GOODWIN who was killed just the day before Norman, and they are buried near each other in Hull Northern Cemetery.

With 607 Squadron at Tangmere he was sot down over the Isle of Wight at 10.30 am during combat with Bf 110's and his Hurricane V6687 was lost
