An Iraq war hero is selling his £100,000 gallantry medal he won for a notorious battle so he can help get his son on the property ladder.<br />
<br />
Sergeant Gordon Robertson has proudly displayed the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross in his home since he was awarded it following the Battle of Majar al Kabir in which six British Royal Military policemen were killed in 2003.<br />
<br />
He has now decided to sell his decoration - one down from the Victoria Cross - because he wants to help buy his grown-up son his first house.
