David Barrett was born in London, England just before WWII began in 1939. He and his mother endured the nightly bombing of the city during The Blitz before being evacuated to Coventry in the English Midlands. Shortly after, Coventry became the target of Nazi bombing raids forcing Barrett and his mother to return to London. His father served in the British Army during the war and David would go on to be conscripted into the RAF at age 19.
