War hero brother I never had the chance to meet (From The Northern Echo)

Sgt Newton lived in Ushaw Moor, near Durham City. A wireless operator, he was 21 when his plane developed engine problems and crashed, four miles from the end of a seven-hour training flight.

Hazel’s mother, Gertrude, named every pet budgerigar she ever had Tommy and could never bring herself to watch Remembrance Day parades on television. Her father, Herbert, watched, but cried every time.
