Hi All, OK! Who bought this little lot then? SAS hero's Iranian embassy siege medal sold Published Date: 29 September 2010 Medals belonging to an SAS soldier who took part in the 1980 storming of the Iranian embassy in London sold for nearly £100,000 at auction today. Sergeant Tommy Palmer was awarded the Queen's Gallantry Medal for his bravery in overcoming the terrorists who held 26 people captive for six days. At one point in the operation Sgt Palmer's machine gun jammed. When one of the hostage-takers shot at him and missed, the soldier chased him down and shot him with his handgun. The medal and others awarded for the SAS hero's service in Northern Ireland, Dhofar in Oman and the Falklands, went under the hammer for £98,750, including buyer's premium. So who had some spare change back in the Autumn? Nice group to own that's for sure!
