In 1963, a Royal Mail Train was stopped by a gang of criminals on the Glasgow to Euston line. They stole £2.6 million pounds in surplus bank notes, this equates to around £50 million today. It was named the Crime of the Century, as it was the largest robbery ever! It not only made the National press but also was infamous all around the World.
Nick Cooke, a guide and steward at Bletchley Park World, will talk about the beginnings of the robbery, some of the gang members, the actual robbery, the vehicles, the hideout and the arrests.
Home made tea and cakes will be available.
