Jim enlisted in October 1939 and after training joined the Signals Platoon 11 Worc R and landed with it in Normandy in June 1944 after it had been redesignated 1 Worc R. He was awarded the Military Medal in 1945 and his citation reads

“Throughout Op Veritable from 11 Feb 45 onwards, Sgt Norton set an example of devotion to duty and initiative that was quite outstanding. On 16 Feb at Berkhofel, after a successful attack by the Bn, line had to
be laid to Coys whose exact positions were still unknown. Under continuous and heavy shell and mortar fire of the whole area, this NCO led a line party which worked all night and finally succeeded in establishing communications forward. By the time the battle reached Imigshot on the 18 Feb, the line section was becoming very tired, so he frequently went out, always under heavy fire, to reestablish contact with the Coys. This was done entirely on his own initiative, and reported to the Signals Officer only after the task had been completed. The success of this series of operations was done in no small part to the maintenance of communications. Sgt Norton by his personal effort, initiative and courage during this very strenuous and trying period so helped to inspire his platoon that operations never suffered for lack of communications.” Jim was also Mentioned in Despatches and awarded a C-in-C’s Certificate.
His funeral is to take place at 13:00 hours on Thursday 22 December 2011 at Oakley Wood Crematorium, Bishops Tachbrook, Leamington Spa CV33 9QP. Family flowers only, but donations may be made to ‘The Mercian Regimental Charity’ and forwarded to RHQ MERCIAN. Heath
