Here's one that passed me by!

Here's one that somehow passed me by, but then again, by all accounts he always did keep things rather quiet.
On this day in1990 Charlie Wilson, known as the ‘silent man' of the Great Train Robbery, was shot dead at his home near Marbella, Spain.

Do you recall the massive news coverage and the black and white TV footage when the 1963 Great Train Robbery took place? I personally felt that the Phil Collins film 'Buster' was much better.
