Patricia Worthy (nee Francis) says: 17th September 2018 at 7:49 am I was born at Flete Castle on 12 February 1942. My Australian father was posted to Plymouth with the RAAF Sunderland Squadron. In June 2016 we travelled to the UK and visited Plymouth, staying at Chester House. We had emailed Flete Castle about a visit but were told rather abruptly that it was a private retirement village and to contact the council if we wanted information about war babies. Nevertheless we did take a trip to Flete Castle and drove up to the front entrance to take a photo. We found ourselves wondering how Mum and Dad would have got to the Castle given that it was a good few miles out of Plymouth and that they didn’t have a car, or much money. I remember seeing Mum’s personal photo of Flete and she was always rather proud of it. Dad finished his posting to Plymouth when I was 4 months old and they came out to Australia on the Umgani I believe. Dad was then posted to a flying boat repair depot in Lake Boga, Victoria, Australia.
