    I have a limited edition print of the David Shepherd painting,

    "16 Princes gate 5th May 1980" No 574 of 800

    Depicts the moment that "Faisal" was shot when trying to set off a grenade on the staircase as they were evacuating the hostages from the embassy. It's a large print approx 3' by 2' or 90cm by 60cm in new money.

    Comes with signed certificate of authenticity dated Jan 84, but is not framed.

    It's being sold on behalf of the Rotary club i'm a member of.

    Please bid generously!

  2. That's no good, it's not signed. :D
  3. That's me on the staircase!!! Can't you see the similarities? I was 2nd through the window in the siege and "slotted" several fuzzy wuzzies. I claim my right to this piece of art, and request all female arrsers service my sexual needs for being nails.

    Nice piccy btw, nice, but not interested, sorry
  4. I would have been in it but I was still putting myself out at the back window when that git Shepherd ran in, set up an easel, donned a large black beret and cape and before "Smudger" and "Dinger" could say "What the fuck!!", he'd knocked that little masterpiece out. If you look carefully you can even see where he dropped his can of red paint at the foot of the stairs.
  5. It is signned, bottom right.
  6. ahem....bump
  8. Would you actually hang it in your dining room though ?
  9. Next to the ammo boxes and cam nets....lovely :wink:
  10. I've decided this military painting lark could be quite profitable so here is my first effort. It depicts THEM (obligatory if you want a good seller) and is of the night time raid of Pebble Island during the Falklands war. It took me all day and I must say I'm quite proud of the result.

    Who will start the bidding at what, shall we say £1000?

    SAS Raid, Pebble Island.

  12. Sorry mate, as good as the rotarians are at the philanthropic business, I think you would have a better response on this site if the proceeds were to be donated to a service charity. Good luck anyway
