At 19.07 on the 5th of May 1980 John Dellow of the Metropolitan Police signed a document passing control of the Iranian Embassy siege to LT. COL H.M. Ross. He sent in three, four-man teams (Sabre Teams) of 22 S.A.S., the rest is history.
For many the S.A.S. are the black-clad rescuers of Princes Street depicted by the B.B.C. as the pictures of the last minutes of the siege were relayed live around the world.
We as mere mortals can only wonder at the exploits of this most professional and highly trained fighting force as officially it does not exist.
This simulation is based on the information that is available and is produced by people who have a great deal of admiration for those whom they will never know.
