A story of British resilience based on the personal recollections of my father, (Sgt) Donald Jeffs, the sole survivor of the crash of a Stirling Bomber carrying this famous name.
The MacRoberts Reply Story tells of a grieving mother making a donation to the RAF to buy a Stirling bomber to seek revenge for the loss of her sons, and the young men who flew it.
It tells of the amazing courage of the crew, the wonderful respect shown to them by the people of Denmark following the crash, and the resilience of the sole survivor. In between it describes their daily lives, their friendships and anecdotes, and the underlying determination of Lady MacRobert for retribution.
The story is constructed by author Phil Hamlyn Williams using personal recollections from the last crew member Donald Jeffs, and incorporating many years of research from his son Philip Jeffs. There is more on the website www.macrobertsreply.com
