>Is Norman the Norman Glew who flew in the Battle of Britain and was killed in 1944? If so you've got a very distinguished family history - there's a brief account of his exploits at:
It appears that aviation may be in the Glew family.
My grandfather, Montague Francis Glew, barnstormed 1912-1914. RAeC number 401. http://earlyaviators.com/eglew.htm
His brother, Aubrey Edmund Glew, http://earlyaviators.com/eglew.htm,
died when shot down in 1916, 2d/lt RFC, 4 kills to his name.
My great uncle, Cyril Edgar Foggin joined the RFC in 1914 and rose to the rank of Major , was wounded, but was killed in a car accident behind the western front, 30 July 1918 and is buried in France. MF Glew, to whom he sold the D type Blackburn, married his youngest sister in 1922.
This plane is currently the oldest British flying aircraft in the world (used to be the oldest flying aircraft, period). Family story is that Cyril was taught to fly by Bleriot, who landed in a village in England (not on the famous flight) where Cyril was the only person who spoke French.
