Warrant Officer Ian White.<br />
<br />
An SAS veteran of the Iranian Embassy siege said today he can now retire after he sold his medals at auction for £38,000. <br />
<br />
Warrant Officer Ian 'Chalky' White, 62, decided to part with his decorations and other military possessions in order to pay off his mortgage which will allow him to stop working.<br />
<br />
Mr White suffers from ill-health and said the move to 'end-game' means he can enjoy the rest of his life.<br />
<br />
The ex-commando was part of an elite SAS team that stormed the London embassy building in 1980 to bring an end to the infamous hostage siege.<br />
<br />
His medals sold at Woolley and Wallis Auctioneers of Salisbury.
