Special Forces heroes

Posted on Fri, 17 October 2008 by Phil Mussell - General News, Medal News

Lord Ashcroft is launching a new book in November. The country's most famous medal collector, whose trust owns more than 150 Victoria Crosses, has recently revealed that as well as the VC he also collects medals awarded to men (and presumably women) of the Special Forces.

We don't know too much about the collection at this stage but MEDAL NEWS has been invited to interview Lord Ashcroft for the December/January issue of the magazine so all will be revealed then!

If you have a question you'd like us to put to Lord Ashcroft (about the Special Forces collection rather than the VCs although we're bound to mention them once or twice I'm sure) please email - we'll do our best to include as many as we can in the interview
