Fifty medals and honours which were awarded to the legendary late actor Sir Christopher Lee have emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
During his glittering 70 year career, the acting behemoth graced our screens as Lord Summerisle in the The Wicker Man, Count Dracula in the Hammer films and Saruman in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.<br />
<br />
Other memorable roles included Scaramanga in the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun and Count Dooku in Star Wars. <br />

But before he found fame he served his country as a young RAF officer in the Second World War, earning mentions in despatches for gallant and distinguished service.
