The Unknown Diamonds is the eleventh and last short story in the fourth anthology of Biggles Air Police short stories entitled Biggles and the Pirate Treasure. The anthology was first published in July, 1954 by Brockhampton.
A police raid at a pawnbrokers uncovers an unexpected cache of diamonds so such high quality that they could only have come from Southwest Africa. But no such diamonds have been reported stolen or lost, and there is no record of them having been imported. So how did these diamonds enter the country and who do they belong to?
