I would like any information on a Ted Benson stationed at Bentwaters spring 1952. He had a brief relationship with my mother Flo Flossie Florence Flewitt and I was born in December. I do not wish for a relationship with this man but would like to have closure.

Message:
A good friend of my mother's (Betty Stallings who was born and lived in Islington, London)was married to a serviceman and they lived in Ipswich. He (known to us just as Stallings)was based at Woodbridge I believe. As a child, I think I visited them in a house off the site of the base in about 1956/7.
I know that Betty and her husband (Stallings) divorced some time after going to live in the US. She went on to a nursing career and contact with her was lost just prior to her getting married again.I would love to know what happened to Betty, who was very much missed by my mum Alice (who died in 2000) and myself.

Some time ago, I asked if you could keep a lookout for Dusty, the longtime bartender at the Woodbridge Officer's Club. I gave his surname as Rhodes in my confusion. He name was Dusty Miller. I believe his first name was Roderick.
Best,
