About the Event
This is the story of a very special rock found in 1996 in Africa and covers its early history until it became famous because of its intrinsic value that became too tempting to villains who attempted to steal it from behind extensive security barriers at the Millennium Dome. The rest is history.
TIM THORN, AFC, FRAeS
After a career of over 30 years in the RAF where he rose to the rank of Commandant General , in 1995, he voluntarily left the RAF to start a new and exciting career with De Beers, the South African Diamond Company. As their Head of Security, he travelled regularly to some 15 different countries including Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea and Sierra Leone. During his time with De Beers he played a significant role in thwarting the largest ever robbery ($350 million) of a rare diamond from the Millennium Dome.
