Norm is an RAAF veteran who jumped from his crippled bomber and walked through the snows and the forests of Germany before being captured. Norm Ginn was another country boy from a fruit block out of Mildura that his father had helped establish after migrating from England.
Norm’s story was collected as part of a oral history community project called World War II in Words where South Australian World War Two veterans shared their stories in their own words.
