Bruce Reynolds is second from right. He was one of the architects of the 1963 UK Great Train Robbery, where a Royal Mail train was robbed of some sixty million dollars in today’s dollars by a gang of 15 men. He spent 5 years on the run before being caught and sentenced to 25 years. He was released in 1978, and died in 2013. This photo was taken when Reynolds was on vacation with his girlfriend (on his left) in the South of France, 1956.
