A news item, some may find of interest ? It is to do with the SAS, but also importantly the sale of medals etc:

SAS veteran who took part in Iranian Embassy siege and Falklands War auctions his haul of medals

John Thompson didn't realise they were valuable until he went to a TV antiques valuation and now hopes for 12,000 at auction

He is the only SAS man to serve during the famous siege of the Iranian Embassy in 1980 and then during the Falklands War in 1982.

If of general interest more at:
