“My Encounter with the Great Train Robbery”  by   John Maris

This is a story of an alert member of the public who had his life and that of his family changed having notified the police of the whereabouts of the hideout of the Great Train Robbers.

Within days his notoriety had spread worldwide and this began years of constant pressure, physical threats to him and his family, trauma and anxiety. He had to take precautions at work in the hope of preventing an attack whilst working alone.

Because of his careful detail in the evidence which he gave at the trial he was subjected to an attempt to frame him on a charge of perjury. Eventually he pondered the question, If a similar situation arose, would he act in the same way?

John Maris was born in Leyton, London in 1929, he moved with his family to Buckinghamshire in 1940 to escape the German bombing. JHe became interested in farming, helping during holidays on the nearby farm and later gained a scholarship to a grammar school, after which he went to an agricultural college and began a career in agriculture. Whilst working as a herdsman at a farm in Oakley, Buckinghamshire, John made a discovery that was to change his life, forever.
