True love finds a way.
Norwood Thomas was a 21-year-old paratrooper when he met 17-year-old British girl Joyce Morris in London just before D-Day. They dated for a few months before the war intervened and saw Mr Thomas sent to Normandy.
After the war ended, Norwood went back to America, and settled in Virginia Beach, while Joyce ended up in Australia. They lost touch until recently.
Yesterday they reunited in Australia, courtesy of first-class tickets from Air New Zealand, and donations from complete strangers.
