Century.A The farmer, my father, James (Jimmy) Beedie was sitting, relaxing at home with his cousin Donald Watson when they heard the strange, roaring sound of an aircraft engine as it passed overhead A They rushed to the door, but from the dreich, damp, foggy sky above them, they heard no more.
A Jimmy and Donald had been listening to the BBC report on their Marconi Radio unaware that before the night was over they too would be caught up in their own `Battle of Britain experience` at the farm.
The Pilot, peering out of his cockpit window and trying to make sense of where he was, had because of sea-fog, crossed the shoreline unknowingly, and was unaware that he was now over Scottish farm-land.A The Bomber`s crew, Ltz.
A She was right, it had gouged a long deep gully in the wet earth of the turnip field nearby.
Quarter of a mile, precisely, in a field of corn, after rutting the turnip field, bouncing into a wall - which sent it`s floats flying and one of it`s engines skiing off at a tangent - the plane, having rumbled on for another 100 yards or so through the field of corn, had come to a final halt having embedded it`s nose in the soft, fertile, north-east soil. A The three German airmen tried to make their escape from the plane, fearing that it might blow up at any moment.
One jumped clear before it struck ground, thinking he was jumping into the shimmering sea before realizing he had hit shimmering corn instead.


He lay on the ground in tremendous pain with a fractured pelvis and a broken hip-bone, his tangled parachute lying beside him.A As Agnes, Jimmy and Donald approached the turnip field they expected to see a British plane but were shocked when they saw the black German Crosses emblazoned on it. As they followed the deep rut made by the plane Agnes picked up a small pistol lying nearby on the wet earth and put it in her pocket for safe-keeping. The plane`s Navigator lay nearby, seriously injured, where he had landed when he jumped from the plane just before impact. A below: Jimmy BeedieA As Jimmy left to get his motor-bike to go to the village for help, Agnes and Donald drew nearer to the injured German airmen.
They felt that for the injured airman`s safety he should be carried away from the plane in case it burst into flames.
With the help of the 2 other airmen, they retrieved a rubber dingy from the Sea-plane on which to lay the injured man, but it proved too cumber-some and difficult to handle so Donald Watson decided to go and look for a gate on which to lay the injured navigator whilst the young 20 year old Agnes Marr was left alone with the Germans in almost total darkness, with the lantern and the struggling moon-light as her only protection.A A Agnes conversed with the Pilot, and looking at the distraught and injured Navigator thought to herself, "Enemies?
Had the Germans so chosen, they could have shot Agnes and made their escape, but compassion for their injured companion, the futility of their situation and their own inherent-human compassion for a defenceless young foreign woman over-ruled.A The two relatively-uninjured airmen went back inside their plane and Agnes heard the sounds of something being broken up as if the men were trying to destroy something they didn`t want to be seen. They then exited the plane carrying their rucksacks and the Pilot said to Agnes, "Don`t go too near the plane, it is full of bombs and could explode at any moment!"A It was a miracle the bombs didn`t explode when it hit ground zero. The fuel tanks too, which were almost full of petrol, amazingly didn`t break up and burst into flames. Getting no answer he ran back to his motor-bike, got it started and then rushed back to the Police-House. He could hardly persuade Constable Soppitt and others to believe that a German Bomber had crashed onto his farm-land. They considered that the poor man had gone crazy and could hardly believe what he was saying.
Constable Soppitt then decided that he had better phone his Officials at Fraserburgh, a fishing port, 12 miles away, and inform them of the Farmer`s amazing story.A Back at the farm-house, the airman who had good-command of the English language was deep in conversation with Agnes Marr.
He related to her that his own father had trained as a Dental-Surgeon in London prior to the First World War; "Where are we?" he asked the housekeeper.
Spotting the butter and foodstuffs on the kitchen-table, the Airman said with surprise, "You have butter and all this food?
We are told you all are starving!" - "Yes," Agnes replied, "We are told the same about you." The Pilot took from his rucksack 2 sealed packs of food which he then popped into the drawer of a kitchen cupboard.
A Constable Soppitt had, meanwhile, jumped on to the back-seat of Jimmy Beedie`s motor-bike and they were now well on their way back to the farm.
Arriving at the plane and finding it deserted, Jimmy then made for his house where he found his house-keeper, Miss Marr caring for the three airmen and providing them with hot tea, scones, cheese and bread and butter biscuits which she had made herself.
Two of the airman were seated at the kitchen-table and the injured man was lying on the floor. Agnes Marr was at the `stove` frying sausages and eggs for her `visitors` who were still in shock after their unplanned visit.
A The Germans, being in shock, were very quiet and subdued and displayed no rudeness or aire of superiority to their hosts.
In fact, they appeared quite surprised and appreciative of the kindness being shown to them by the young house-keeper. But this was Agnes Marr and like many of her fellow Scots she had that inherent compassion for the sick and injured and considered it her humane duty to care for such injured, even though they were `the enemy`. Her own brother, Leslie was on a Minesweeper ship far away, doing his bit for the defense of his country and she hoped that, if tragedy ever befell him, he too would be treated with similar kindness by the enemy.
Above : New Aberdour VillageA Not long after the arrival of Jimmy Beedie and Constable Soppitt another commotion was heard outside. Then bursting through the door, brandishing guns and rifles, came the `officials` from Fraserburgh, the Home Guard, Police-Inspector George Michie, Police-Sergeant James Thompson and local army officers, and, like the men in the BBC`s `Dad`s Army`, were expecting to face a hostile reception from arrogant Germans.
They were shocked to find all the Air-men sitting in quiet conversation with Agnes and the others.


The scene before them `took the wind out of their sails`.A Dr John Cameron and the District Nurse from New Pitsligo arrived in their wake and immediately set to task of doing what they could to relieve the suffering of the injured Navigator, but because the kitchen was full of hyped-up men, the Doctor found it difficult to treat his patient and Agnes suggested taking the injured man into the main living room where there was more space to work. The Doctor noted that the Pilot looked as if he was still in his teens and asked him where in Germany he was from, "I belong to Hamburg," he replied "and I`ve also been to America, and my father trained in London." He took from his rucksack a box and the good-doctor realized that it was a first-class first-aid kit. A Some time later an ambulance arrived to take the injured man to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary hospital, and as they carried him out on a stretcher to the ambulance he discreetly took from his jacket-pocket a pair of binoculars and pressed them into Agnes`s hands, saying, "Danke, Veile" - "Thank you, very much." The army-officers then took hold of the other 2 airmen to take them away and as they were leaving the house, the airmen turned to Agnes Marr and Jimmy Beedie, thanked them profusely for the humaneness shown them, and the Pilot taking the anchor-badge from the Navigator`s cap, pressed this into Jimmy Beedie`s hands as he left. A The night had long gone and it was almost the dawning of the morning before the farm-house emptied of it`s visitors and neither Jimmy Beedie nor Agnes Marr slept that night. At Dawn, Jimmy watched as the RAF set up guard a ` safe-distance` from the abandoned bomb-laden aircraft. No one, that is, except the `bomb-busters` (and a sneaky, unofficial party from the nearby Pennan village, of `Local Hero` fame, who got through the cordon unseen and made off with a Verey pistol).
Sergeant George Thompson of the RAF was startled to see one of his young men sitting astride one of the bombs, "Hey Young, do you want to blow us all up?" he screamed.
Sapper David Young, a teenager with a bomb-proof constitution chirpily replied, "How high do you reckon I`ll go, if it does, Sarge?" This was David and Goliath 1940`s style.
The task of defusing the bombs took several days and much sweating, but the work was completed.A Then, like vultures, other officials swooped in to strip the plane of it`s rich pickings. Sledgehammers, crowbars, picks, shovels and axes - anything that could be put to use to `skeletonise` the plane was utilised.
The banging, thudding, ripping and tearing apart of the plane could be clearly heard back at the farm-house by Jimmy Beedie and Agnes Marr. At Windyhead his eulogy was even more appropriate.A After the German Air-Navigator was released from hospital, he joined his comrades at a Prisoner-of-War camp, remaining there til the war ended in 1945. They then returned to Germany where one of the Airmen had their story published amongst others in a book entitled, `Luftwaffe at War (1939-42).

Spotting the butter and foodstuffs on the kitchen-table, the Airman said with surprise, "You have butter and all this food? Sadly, her beloved brother Leslie sustained injuries during his war-time service which led to his early death in 1947, at the age of 34 years.
Jimmy and Agnes were laid to rest next to Leslie in the serenity of the immaculately-kept kirkyard of New Aberdour`s St.
Drostan`s Church, which overlooks the beautiful and imposing Moray coastline that the Heinkel Bomber fatefully crossed, that September night, exactly 72 years ago.I was barely 12 years of age when I first heard fall from my mother`s own lips, the story of the crash-landing of the German Bomber, and over the next 50 years, whenever enquiring minds asked her to retell her incredible experience, her detailed and crystal-clear recollection of that unforgettable night were so embedded in her memory that she never once deviated in any way from the account I first heard as a youngster. Mitchell (Fraserburgh) after having been invited to open the new `Superdrug` Store in Fraserburgh. A The German military secret service, commonly known as the Abwehr, conducted a small series of secret operations under the codename of Unternehmen Moewe (pronounced - Mwav) (Meaning: Operation Seagull) throughout World War II. These operations are not to be mixed up with the British special forces' operation Seagull, conducted against the Arendal smelting works and other plants in Norway June 1944.
The Moewe operations were of such a small scale, that they have received little to no attention in commonly available history literat-ure.
Another likely reason for them not being mentioned is the destruction of archives in later stages of the war.
