A mother of two young adults, Jill Robertson was raised in Surrey, but lived in Toronto, Canada, during the 1970s. She later returned to England to pursue a career in office administration, office planning and, ultimately, passenger services for United Airlines. Interest in her father’s time as a ‘prisoner’ during the Second World War grew after she encountered FEPOW Fergus Anckorn in 2012. Since then, she has contributed enthralling articles for newspapers and newsletters. Jill is West Sussex Area Co-ordinator CoFEPOW (Children of Far Eastern Prisoners of War) and WASPI (Women Against State Pension Inequality). Her later years are now more active than expected. She lives with her partner in Northampton. This is her first book.
