Biography contributed by Carly Sheil

Norman George Manly Joseph "Norm" Burton was born on 8 January 1889 to Solomon Burton and Mary Madeline Genevieve (Martin) Burton in Chatswood, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

He joined the 7th Australian Light Horse Regiment and served at Gallipoli, Egypt and Palestine before being wounded at the Battle of Beersheba and finally discharged in March 1919.

On an Anzac Day visit to Sydney in 1920 he met a former sweetheart from pre-war days in Bourke and just six weeks later he and Lillian Annie Johnson were married at Our Lady of Dolours, Chatswood on 1 June 1920.

Norm passed away on 3 October 1957 in Chatswood.
