Falklands DSC Group up for grabs

Deep pockets required for this Falklands War DSC group which is up for grabs at the next DNW medals auction on the 15th December (when are deep pockets NOT required for medals?)  DNW estimates the group at between £80k and £100k.  Let's see how much it actually goes for.

Interviews with the recipient, who had his left arm blown off whilst unsuccessfully defusing a bomb during the Falkalnds War, are HERE and HERE.  Image courtesy of Dix Noonan Webb.  Read more about the group HERE.
