... my father, 94 years old, still remembering some of the harrowing
experiences he spent with the squadron in Africa, Sicily, Italy (with
Canadians), especially Salerno, and Burma.
His name is Frederick William Worton, but was and is still called
"Jock" for his Scottish birth. Dad was in Transport and drove
thousands of miles in 'his' lorry, nicknamed "Bubbles" for his wife
and love of his life (married in 1941) and still together after 69
years in a nursing home.
Dad was asking about his co-driver through out most of those thousands
of miles, Tex Searle. We're not sure if he was 81 Squadron, or an
American,with a name like Tex.
Anyway, maybe someone else remembers Jock Worton, the guy who led
convoys, brought in provisions, Spitfire parts, 100 octane aviation
petrol, while dodging Gerry's bombs, and later, Japanese fighters.
Thank you for your time and effort to help us.
Cheers (current photo attached - we have old photos too)
