oin Rusty Firmin as he enthrals audiences with his account of the SAS’s incredible hostage rescue mission during the Iranian Embassy Siege in 1980.

Rusty Firmin served 26 years in the British Army, 15 of which in B Squadron, 22 SAS. He was Blue Team leader on Operation Nimrod and will give you an unparalleled insight into his SAS career, SAS selection and a detailed account of the mission, which propelled the secretive 22 SAS onto the world stage. Rusty’s experience of Operation Nimrod was subsequently made into the 2017 feature film 6 Days, which starred Jamie Bell as Rusty.

The Special Air Service (SAS) is a special forces unit of the British Army. The SAS was founded in 1941 as a regiment and undertakes a number of roles including covert reconnaissance, counter-terrorism, direct action and hostage rescue. Much of the information and actions regarding the SAS is highly classified, and is not commented on by the British government or the Ministry of Defence due to the sensitivity of their operations.
