☯ Full Synopsis : "The Squad that investigated The Great Train Robbery. "The Old Grey Fox" or "One Day Tommy" (Detective Chief Superintendent Tommy Butler) selected six of the best officers on the elite Metropolitan Police Flying Squad to investigate the Crime of the Century, but whilst many books have been written by and about every criminal arrested for this crime, NONE have been written about the detectives who traced and tracked them. Tommy Butler delayed his retirement to complete the job, but died a few months after he retired at 57 years of age, the only detective of his rank in the late 1950s and 1960s not to publish an autobiography.This book provides a detailed account of the men tasked with tracking down the most notorious thieves in British history. It examines the investigation in detail and asks how it would contrast with the methods used today should a similar incident take place.Geoff Platt examines what happened to these men after the investigation was closed and the effect it had on both their personal and professional lives."Article| Geoff Platt| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The names of Bruce Reynolds, Buster Edwards, and Ronnie Biggs have become synonymous with the Great Train Robbery. But a major contributor solved the question of stopping the train – and he came from another firm. When the question of stopping the train was raised, Buster thought he might know someone . . . who knew someone. A link was made and two ‘firms’ joined forces, though the recent claim that Roger Cordrey was suggested to Buster grossly over-simplifies the dynamics of the two firms joining. This, the second in a series of essays looking at the Great Train Robbery, plots the known history of the second firm of Roger Cordrey, Bobby Welch, Tommy Wisbey and others who joined up with the main firm to rob the train. They were loosely called The South Coast Raiders and had already had some success with train raids on the southern rails. The narrative traces what is known of their raids, looking at contemporary reports, together with what was discussed in later years. Roger Cordrey described himself as a ‘technician’ who wired up the ‘distant’ signal for John Daly to switch to amber in order to slow the train down; Roger himself was at the ‘home’ signal to bring the train to a standstill. And the raid could start. A recent account claims that John Daly didn’t follow Roger’s instructions though there is no definitive evidence to support this. This series of essays is to stimulate discussion. My first essay was knocked because I called the Director of Public Prosecutions by their latter day title of the Crown Prosecution Service: for some reason the review was entitled Unsubstantiated Ravings! A follow-up laid criticism for not putting in an apostrophe! But if these are the only faults, then it does suggest the overall content might have some merit and therefore something to offer the reconsideration of history in Britain in the 1960’s."Article| Jim Morris| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Definitive account of the famous 1963 Great Train Robbery - and its aftermath. In the early hours of Thursday 8th August 1963 at rural Cheddington in Buckinghamshire, £2.6 million (£50 million today) in unmarked £5, £1 and 10-shilling notes was stolen from the Glasgow to London nightmail train in a daring and brilliantly executed operation lasting just 46 minutes. Quickly dubbed the crime of the century, it has captured the imagination of the public and the world's media for 50 years, taking its place in British folklore and giving birth to the myths of The Great Train Robbery. Ronnie Biggs, Buster Edwards and Bruce Reynolds became household names. But what really happened? This is the story of four talented villains who took the criminal world by storm, of the 'perfect crime'. It is also the story of ruthless policemen, determined to hunt the robbers down and to make sure nobody slipped through the net, not even the innocent. It is the story of an Establishment under siege, and of one mistake which cost the robbers 307 years in prison. Fifty years later, here is the story set out in full for the first time, a true-life crime thriller, and also a vivid slice of British social history."Article| Nick Russell-Pavier| Statement ..."
