    • It is clear that Frank served in the military. Quoted from a Supplement to the London Gazette, published on 28 January, 1915. "Norfolk (The King's Own Royal Regiment): The undermentioned to be Second Lieutenant. Dated 6th November, 1914:- Francis George Leyland Wooster".
      Frank became a P.O.W. and this is substantiated by one report published on the suicide of his mother, Annie, which states that she (Annie) was worried about her son, who "was a P.O.W. in Germany". Oddly though, at the time of her suicide, Frank had already been repatriated. Records indicate that 2nd Lt. F.G.L. Wooster was serving with the 5th Battalion, Gloucestershire Regiment on attachment to the Norfolk Yeomanry. He was reported missing on 29 August 1917 but was repatriated on 20 December 1918.

    L'hôtel Acary de la Riviêre
    This Villa, built by Field Marshall Viscount Henri Dominique Acary de la Riviera (a resident of Montreuil) in 1818, was described as one of the most delightful residences in Montreuil. It was bought by Baron Eugene Fould-Springer in 1928 and after his death in 1929, his wife Mary (Marie) continued to live there, re-marrying to Frank Wooster in 1933. The Mansion was bequeathed to the city on 9 November 1973 by Mary Wooster and after her death in 1978, became "The Franck and Mary Wooster Museum of Hope".

    Also bequeathed to the town was the 14 bedroom annex to L'hôtel Acary, which is now a hotel and restaurant known as the Chateau de Montreuil.
