COMMENT: The recent deaths of two of the robbers from Britain’s Great Mail Train Robbery call to mind an important part of that crime that has been obscured.

In FTR #83, we noted the alleged role of SS commando-chief and ODESSA operative Otto Skorzeny in the Great Mail Train Robbery, as it has been known.

(This account came from a gang member, who later reversed his claim, prior to being found dead by hanging–an alleged suicide.)

Skorzeny became a primary Gehlen operative after the war.

The recently deceased Ronald Biggs found refuge in Brazil, a prime area of Underground Reich activity. Citizen Greenwald, himself no stranger to Nazi activity, hangs his hat in the same country.

Brazil is also one of the countries that impinges on the Three Borders Area, long an epicenter of Islamist and Nazi terror, including elements of both milieux apparently involved in the 9/11 attacks.

Note that the train that was robbed also carried sensitive communications packets for British intelligence. It has been theorized that the robbery was a cover for purloining intelligence documents.

“Rebel to the Last: Ronnie Biggs’ Floral Wreath in Shape of Two Fingers at Great Train Robber’s Funeral” by Paul Cockerton and Ben Rossington; The Daily Mirror [UK]; 1/3/2014.

EXCERPT: Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs, who spent much of his life cocking a snook at authority, was given an appropriate send off today.

When he was last seen in public, at the funeral of robbery mastermind Bruce Reynolds, Biggs stuck two fingers up at journalists.

Today, as the hearse carrying his coffin passed through the streets of north London, a white floral wreath in the shape of a two-fingered salute was visible alongside a Union flag and the flag of Brazil, the country where he spent many years as a fugitive from British justice. . . .
