Norman Bullen passed away at the Repatriation General Hospital, Hobart on 7 June 1967 aged 83 years.
He was a 32 year old married tram conductor living at Malvern in Victoria in early 1917. On 7 March he volunteered for enlistment and was allotted to the 21st reinforcements for the 13th Light Horse.
He applied to have his enlistment deferred until July due to his wife being unwell and having three young daughters to care for. This was approved and he finally departed for overseas on 21 November 1917. After a period of time in camp in Egypt he arrived in England on 24 January 1918 for further training before proceed-ing to ’the front’ on 25 May 1918. He was then taken on strength with the 22nd Light Horse and serve out the remainder of the war with this unit. He returned to Australia in April 1919.
It would appear that Norman gave up his job as a building pre-war in order to enlist. Post war he worked as a farmer at Manangatang, possibly a soldier settlement block. By 1949 he had moved to Launceston and was once again working as a builder.
