Albert Cast was recruited into the RAF in November 1941. He was trained as a wireless operator and gunner. Deployed to Suez aboard the Athlone Castle, then onto Bombay (Mumbai), finally arriving at Chittagong. The role of 2739 Squadron was to defend airfields to keep the army supplied as they advanced. Albert became known as "Daddy" following his excited exclamation "I'm a Daddy" upon hearing the news of the birth of his son Michael. Albert was in Burma at the time.
