    Here is the SLR, the assault rifle the SAS used during the battle.

    Also, if you wish to learn more about Pete Winner, what SAS training was like, his experiences, etc. I recommend this book, Soldier 'I'. It is a great read.

    Overview:

    No publicity, no media. We move in silently, do our job, and melt away into the background. If you have the stamina, the willpower and the guts, we’ll welcome you with open arms and you one of us. And if you haven’t, then it’s been very nice knowing you.

    Eighteen years in the SAS saw Pete Winner, codenamed Soldier ‘I’, survive the savage battle of Mirbat, parachute into the icy depths of the South Atlantic at the height of the Falklands War, and stormed the Iranian Embassy during the most famous hostage crisis in the modern world.

    For the first time Pete also details his close-protection work around the world, from the lawless streets of Moscow to escorting aid convoys into war-torn Bosnia. He also unveils the problems of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder faced by many Special Forces veterans, and how he battled his own demons to continue his roller-coaster career. This is his story, written with a breathtaking take-no-prisoners attitude that brings each death-defying episode vividly to life.

    Bonus info: He got into a bar fight in Hong Kong and was sent to prison simply because he had possession of brass knuckles there. And instead of having to spend like 3 years in prison, he instead chose a form of corporal punishment to get out immediately.
