Francis (Frank) Roberts was born in 1899, at 16 years old he enrolled in the Royal Flying Corps during the Great War to serve his country. Whilst fighting over in France he was awarded the Croix De Guerre (French VC) and mentioned in dispatches for “whilst flying at extremely low level under heavy enemy fire and taking damage to both himself and the aircraft he successfully destroyed an enemy bridge halting their advance”. This is one of the highest accolades an airman can receive.

 

Shortly after still at only 17 years old he was shot down and badly injured in his foot and leg, this was the end of his war. He went on to become Squadron leader until the end of WW2 where he trained personnel in the RAF. After the war Frank set up his own Transport Firm which he carried on until the late 1950’s. The business was renowned for being reliable and courteous this was how Frank was as a man, something that can get forgotten in the busy lifestyles of today.

 

Recently Franks Great Grandson has rekindled the old company and intends to work to the standards of his Grandfather and become a leading passenger transport company operating within Northamptonshire.

 

If you’re looking for a quality reliable courteous company to look after you transport needs then look no further, we look forward to hearing from you.
