FC 95 The British Raid on Essex with Jerry Roberts

Read more

This week on Fieldstone Common our featured guest is Jerry Roberts, the author of the book The British Raid on Essex: The Forgotten Battle of the War of 1812. This book re-introduces a part of the War of 1812 that was erased from American history.

Bio – Jerry Roberts

Jerry Roberts has been in the history business for over 30 years. He has served as Vice President in charge of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum in New York City, Executive Director of Connecticut River Museum in Essex CT, and Battlefield Historian for the British Raid on Essex Project. He has designed and built over forty exhibits, has written or co-written several books and documentaries and has published dozens of newspaper and magazine articles.

Roberts is an avid sailor and merchant marine master and has navigated the eastern seaboard in small boats and historic vessels from The Gulf Coast to Nova Scotia.

He now lives overlooking the Connecticut River with his wife and two children where he continues to write about adventures large and small while designing exhibits and public programs.

Book Summary

This is the dynamic account of one of the most destructive maritime actions to take place in Connecticut history: the 1814 British attack on the privateers of Pettipaug, known today as the British Raid on Essex. During the height of the War of 1812, 136 Royal marines and sailors made their way up the Connecticut River from warships anchored in Long Island Sound. Guided by a well-paid American traitor the British navigated the Saybrook shoals and advanced up the river under cover of darkness. By the time it was over, the British had burned twenty-seven American vessels, including six newly built privateers. It was the largest single maritime loss of the war. Yet this story has been virtually left out of the history books—the forgotten battle of the forgotten war. This new account from author and historian Jerry Roberts is the definitive overview of this event and includes a wealth of new information drawn from recent research and archaeological finds. Illustrations and detailed maps bring the battle to life.

Learn about the traitor who helped the British navigate their way up the Connecticut River and how the British escaped despite being surrounded by American troops.

Extra - E34 - Captain Jerry Roberts MBE

Read more

March 2014

Captain Jerry Roberts MBE, one of Bletchley Park’s last
Codebreakers, died this week at the age of 93.

Jerry was one of the original members of The Testery
working on cracking Tunny, the German High Commands code,
used by Hitler & his top Generals.

Their work warned the Russian’s of The Kursk Offensive,
allowing them to defend until the Germans called off, what would be their last major offensive on the Eastern Front.
Winston Churchill said “Stalingrad was the end of the
beginning, but the Battle of Kursk was the beginning of the end”.

In this Bletchley Park Podcast Extra, we bring you the
interview we recorded at Jerry’s home, in February 2013
after being awarded an MBE. It is followed a short interview
Katherine recorded on the day he received his MBE from
Her Majesty The Queen.

Sir John Scarlett KCMG OBE, Chairman, Bletchley Park Trust,
paying tribute to Jerry said:

“Captain Jerry Roberts MBE was a true gentleman and - to the
last days of his long life - an outstanding ambassador for
Bletchley Park.

In World War 2 he was a key member of the team who
deciphered the most secret communications of Hitler and his top commanders, work of incomparable importance for the outcome of the War.

Unfailingly modest about his own achievements, he was
committed to the end to achieving recognition for the work of his colleagues and the contribution of all those who worked at
Bletchley Park. He will be greatly missed.

Our thoughts are with his devoted wife, Mei."

Extra - E17 - Capt. Jerry Roberts MBE Full Interview

Read more

February 2013

In this episode we have the full interview with Captain Jerry Roberts, who was today (28/02/13) awarded an MBE by Her Majesty The Queen in honour of his 4 year campaign for more recognition for Alan Turing, Bill Tutte and Tommy Flowers.

Jerry shares with us what it was like to work in The Testery breaking coded messages from Hitler, his memories of “a great man” Bill Tutte, working as a War Crimes Investigator and setting up the first Marketing company in post war South America.

Captain Roberts was one of four founding members of the Testery, named after its leader, Ralph Tester. This team was tasked with breaking Germany’s highest-level cipher system, Lorenz, known by the Codebreakers as Tunny. Captain Roberts worked in the Testery from its inception in October 1941, after Bill Tutte made the first break into the Lorenz system, until the end of the war in 1945.
