Biography

Husband of Rita Gertrude Gormann (nee ____). Son of Johann Friedrich Carl Gormann and Edith Alvera Gormann (nee Renner). 

Like many Australian's during World War Two, Colin changed his last name upon enlistment to sound 'less' German by dropping the second 'N' in his last name making it Gorman, instead of Gormann. 

Served in the Middle East and New Guinea.
