Bude1942 - a Memory of Bude.

I was born in Flexbury Park Nursing Home, Bude in Nov 1942. My parents lived at the time in Breakwater Road.
Does anyone know where this nursing home was ?
It appears that when my father returned on leave from the RAF they asked St Michael and All Angels to Baptize me on a Wednesday.When this request was denied my mother informed the vicar that there was a war on ! I was duly baptized on Wednesday 17 Dec 1942 !
