Photograph of SAS Iranian Embassy Siege signed by Robin Horsfall
Donated especially for this auction the A4 sized photograph of members of the SAS entering the Iranian Embassy is signed by Robin Horsfall of B Sqn 22 SAS. This is an incredible opportunity to own a unique piece of British military history and support an extremely worthy cause.
“The Iranian Embassy siege took place from 30 April to 5 May 1980, after a group of six armed men stormed the Iranian embassy in South Kensington, London. The gunmen took 26 people hostage—mostly embassy staff, but several visitors and a police officer, who had been guarding the embassy, were also held. The breaking of a terrorist siege in the heart of London in 1980 catapulted the normally secretive SAS onto the world stage. The audacious daylight assault, carried out in the full glare of media scrutiny, made the Regiment and it’s motto, ‘Who Dares Wins’ an indelible part of UK culture. The techniques used in the operation were quickly studied and copied by other Special Forces and counter-terrorism units around the world.”
