DHM1413. Sacrifice at Mirbat, Dhofar, Oman, 19th July 1972 by David Pentland.
When 250 well armed and trained rebel tribesmen attacked the small SAS outpost at Mirbat few would have given good odds on their survival. At the height of the battle Corporal Labalaba and Trooper Savesaki, both Fijians and both wounded fought off relentless assaults by the attacking Adoo. Firing a World War II vintage 25pdr field gun at point blank range Labalaba finally fell to a snipers bullet just as Captain Kealy and Trooper Tobin reached the gunpit to aid its defence. Within minutes however Tobin was dead, but Kealy and the remaining defenders critical position was saved by the timely arrival of 2 Omani Strikemaster jets, and helicopters carrying 24 men of G Squadron.
Signed limited edition of 1150 prints.

DR14. Lance Corporal Mel Townsend by David Rowlands.
Lance Corporal Mel Townsend, 22 SAS, in action in Dhofar, 6th January, 1975, for which he was awarded the DCM. Mel Townsend, of the Royal Corps of Signals, was a member of a squadron of the 22nd SAS Regiment controlling Arab Irregulars in support of the Sultan of Oman's Armed Forces in Dhofar from September 1974 to January 1975. He was the leader of a four man SAS liaison patrol attached to a company of the Sultan's Armed Forces in a battalion operation against guerrilla forces on 6th January 1975. His company was demoralised after coming under heavy enemy fire and Mel noticed that very little fire was being returned. He ran forward with two other men and began returning fire. He then encouraged the Arab soldiers to fire their weapons and inspired them to do so by his personal example. His initiative saved the day. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal for his inspiring example of the highest gallantry and military ability.
