Biography

Bombardier Norman Lazenby was the son of Charles and Eleanor Lazenby. He attended Borough Road College though nothing is known about his time at the college, or if he finished his studies. The 1918 annual report lists his destination as “R.F.A., Wiltshire”, implying he was going straight from education into active war service. Lazenby served with the Royal Field Artillery until his death on 17 July 1918 aged 20. The Roll of Honour states the he “Died from wounds”.
