An inspiration





We started Patria to support the main Armed Forces Charities and to give back to the huge numbers of people who have given so much for our country.­­­­ 

After we celebrated the Royal Air Force’s centenary on April 1st, Barry Postlethwaite wrote to us and shared a story about his grandfather, a veteran of the Royal Flying Corps (RFC), a precursor to the RAF.

Barry emailed us his story:

“My mother’s Dad, my grandad, Patrick Conlin was in the RFC in the First World War.

“He kept his RFC badge on his blazer. Got shot down over German lines dropping leaflets telling the Germans to surrender. Got court-martialled in Murren by the Germans and sentenced to 10 years.­­

“He finally got home in 1919.

“Just thought I’d share that story, his pilot was called Colin William Pruden.

“Grandad admitted doing it on previous occasions!” 

Barry isn’t the first Patria supporter to tell us about a family member’s service or, indeed, their own.  We want to share these inspirational service tales with our community.

If you have a story – be it from a grandparent, parent or brother or sister – we’ve love to hear it. 

Please email me at: RT@Patriagb.com and you can read more about our commitment here.
