Timothy Landon was one of Britain's wealthiest men, after a friendship with Sultan Qaboos.
“The key British power broker with influence in Oman is Timothy Landon. In 1970, the sultan ran a bloodless coup against his father with the help of Landon, a British military and intelligence figure. Known as the "Lawrence of Arabia" of Oman, Landon, who now lives in England, was the sultan's college buddy at Sandhurst. According to British intelligence sources, Shackley has a working relationship with Landon's associates and operatives.”
