Crime & Punishment/Ronald Kray: London County Council school leaving certificate for one of the most infamous British gangsters of all time, Ronnie Kray. 'This is to certify that Ronald Kray of 178 Vallance Road, E2 is exempt from the obligation to attend school within the administrative County of London', dated 17-12-48. Provenance: The certificate was given to the vendor's friends George and Sue Duyer by Charlie Kray, the eldest of the three Kray brothers. When Charlie was released on license in 1975 he stayed with George and his family.
NB. Ronald "Ronnie" Kray (24 October 1933 - 17 March 1995) and Reginald "Reggie" Kray (24 October 1933 - 1 October 2000), twin brothers, were British criminals, the foremost perpetrators of organised crime, in the East End of London during the 1950s and 1960s. With their gang, known as the Firm, the Krays were involved in armed robbery, murder, arson, protection rackets and assaults. In the 1960s, as West End nightclub owners, the Kray twins mixed with politicians and prominent entertainers such as Diana Dors, Frank Sinatra, and Judy Garland. They became celebrities themselves, were photographed by David Bailey and interviewed on television.
The Krays were arrested on 8th May 1968 and convicted in 1969, as a result of the efforts of detectives led by Detective Superintendent Leonard 'Nipper' Read. Each was sentenced to life imprisonment. Ronnie was committed to Broadmoor Hospital in 1979 and remained there until his death on 17th March 1995 from a heart attack; Reggie was released from prison on compassionate grounds in August 2000, eight and a half weeks before he died of bladder cancer.
