I have learned this morning that SAS hero John McAleese MM passed away yesterday. He was famously photographed on the balcony at the Iranian Embassy siege in May 1980.
It is only 2 years a week ago that he lost his son, Searjeant Paul McAleese in an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
A real hero and hard man has passed away,I'd like to think perhaps he's having a brew with his lad up there right now.
The best of British, R.I.P. Mac.
