  1. BBC News - Iran embassy SAS commander John McAleese dies

    Sounds like this gent suffered a lot of tragedy towards the end of his life. May he find some peace....

    Did the media 'big him up' as the local commander on that day, something perhaps he never confirmed or denied or did he actually confirm his role by writing a book? I know there are various opinions across this site about that but nevertheless there is always a market for that sort of stuff and if a few bob can be made to supplement a forces pension then why not? One glance at how our political masters 'milk' the system with directorships and fake consultancy companies once they have left office is setting the example is it not.
