The greatest robbery in rail history

 

From the Guardian archive

 

Friday August 9, 1963

Guardian

 

A senior police spokesman said last night that the total haul in yesterday's mail train robbery was "clearly well over £1 million" .

The post office train was ambushed in Buckinghamshire by a gang of between eight and 15 men. In executing the biggest and most daring robbery in the history of rail, they altered signals and split the train in two. The Postmaster General, Mr Reginald Bevins, said: "I feel as uncomfortable as anyone in my position would".

Asked if any compensation would be offered for losses, Mr Bevins said people would be compensated only to a limited extent, because £20 was the maximum compensation paid for the loss of a registered package.

The hunt for the men who ambushed the Glasgow-London mail train at 3 a.m. near Cheddington, Buckinghamshire, intensified last night. The National Provincial Bank announced that its loss in the raid was "in excess of £500,000 - almost all in notes." The British Linen Bank in Scotland put its loss at about £55,000.

A loss adjustors' spokesman said the company was offering a reward of £25,000 on the instructions of the two banks. This brings the total reward money being offered to £35,000.

The raid itself was efficient, violent, and over in 15 minutes. Police believe the gang was armed with sticks and iron bars, and dressed in boiler suits with [masks] ranging from nylon stockings to balaclava helmets.

Detective Superintendent Malcolm Fewtrell, of Buckinghamshire CID, said: "They seemed to know their railway signalling."

The gang fixed a signal to stop the train. The men attacked and handcuffed the crew of the engine, forcing them to drive the front two coaches to a bridge where a lorry was waiting.

Other members of the gang had uncoupled the rear 10 coaches in which some 75 postal sorters were hard at work. A PO spokesman said later that there was no reason why they should have known as they work against the clock and there are occasional unscheduled stops.

The registered mail and five PO workers were in the second coach. Members of the gang herded the staff into a corner while they tossed the mailbags through windows.

The locomotive driver, Mr Jack Mills, of Crewe, was detained in hospital with concussion after being hit over the head. He had been handcuffed to his co-driver, Mr David Whitby, also of Crewe.

Mr Whitby said that one of the attackers had grabbed him, put a hand over his mouth, and said: "If you shout, I will kill you."
