Norman Erlend Mooney was born in the Orkney Islands, Scotland. He was educated at Kirkwall Secondary School and was a patrol leader in the second Orkneys scout troop when he was selected along with James William Slesser Marr for the Shackleton-Rowett Expedition 1921-22 (Quest), led by Ernest Henry Shackleton, to serve as cabin-boy in Quest. Setting out from London on 17 September 1921, the expedition reached Madeira the following month where Mooney and J.C. Bee Mason, the photographer and cinematographer, were put ashore due to seasickness, later returning to Britain.
