Veterans & Supporters United very own SAS Hero Rusty Firmin - the real man behind the Iranian Embassy Siege ..!
Rusty & His Team alongside other elite Soldiers from the SAS swept through the building during the 17 minute carnage in which they where under intensive fire from the Terrorists .
Rusty’s Warrant Officer White having seen the Terrorist at the top of the landing shouted out “ TERRORIST - GRENADE ”
White said I - grabbed this person and turned him around and sent him down the stairs when I realised it was a terrorist and he had a grenade.
'I looked over the balcony which over looked the main staircase and I shouted to the team below the words 'terrorist' and 'grenade'.
'Luckily by the time he got down he was taken care of - He was met by a hail of bullets from Rusty before he could release his grenade. If it had gone off we would have lost a lot of the hostages.'
This was the First Time in Britains History that the Elite Special Air Service was captured on film in a live Ongoing Mission & on British Soil .
