Biography contributed by David Barlow

Flight Lieutenant Norman Henry Dick 277483 was formerly the A.D.C. to His Excellency the Governor of Queensland, Australia

He accidentally drowned near Mount Lavinia in Ceylon while attached to RAF HQ / RAAF Overseas Headquarters - during WW2 the Mount Lavinia hotel was used as a military hospital by the British Army.
