Norman joined London Transport at 16 as an electrician and after a stint in the Navy of five years, he returned to London Transport until his retirement in 1985.

Norman is remarkable for his age however his mobility has become restricted in recent years with walking an ever increasing challenge. His daughter, Barbara who lives with him, helped Norman select a 'car boot' mobility scooter several years ago to improve his independence however it proved awkward and difficult to dismantle.
