Tribute to Squadron Leader Gordon 'Orch' Orchard's Youngest Brother, P/O Norman Henry Orchard

Coinciding with my trip to England this coming September, I intend to film a short documentary about a young man who joined the RAAF 8 days after his 18th birthday, tragically killed with his Lancaster crew during a night fighter affiliation exercise with a Hurricane fighter near RAF Waddington, Lincolnshire, England.

The film will not only memorialise these 8 airman but stand as a tribute to all brave airmen who lost their lives in air accidents during the turbulent years of World War Two.

To raise funds for this film project I have a website link This will help with camera equipment costs. I've chosen the 70th anniversary of this incident to release this film and will be able to be viewed on this website.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.
