The man who led the SAS's secretive invasion of Argentina 36 years ago has spoken for the first time about the disastrous mission as he puts his medals up for sale.<br />
<br />
Captain Andy Legg commanded the crack team of eight men for Operation Plum Duff, a raid to find and destroy enemy aircraft capable of carrying Argentina's three remaining Exocet missiles.<br />
 <br />
Due to a combination of bad planning, poor weather and a lack of food the unit had to abandon the mission after spending five days trekking towards the enemy airbase.<br />
<br />
Mr Legg's campaign medals are now being sold by Woolley and Wallis for £40,000.
