Patricia lived in Kilmington with her mother, father and siblings. She remembers the American soldiers jiving at Axminster Guildhall during one of the regular dances and being allowed to watch a movie there. Sadly, her father died during his time in the navy, leaving her mother to bring up the family.

She has fond memories of the American soldiers, including the memory of her mother being given a huge tin of corned beef, a foot high, from one of the soldiers in the local camp.
