Former SAS Staff Sergeant Pete Winner will be on the Convoy for Heroes stand (C33A) at the LRO show at Peterborough on Sunday 11 September click here for LRO Show to sign copies of his book, Soldier I. Pete was one of the first men into the Iranian Embassy when the siege was broken in 1980. At the Convoy for Heroes event at the Heritage Motor Centre over Easter 2011, his lecture on the subject was so popular it over-ran for an hour and the organisers had to bring in extra chairs to accommodate the audience.
Convoy for Heroes is organised on a voluntary basis by a team of dedicated Land Rover enthusiasts to support Help for Heroes. Supported by a number of sponsors, including LRO, it takes the form of a two-day event with attractions for all the family, culminating in an attempt on the Guinness World Record for the longest Land Rover convoy.
Convoy for Heroes 2012 will take place next Easter (7-8 April 2012) at Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire. Booking opens at the Peterborough show, click here for LRO Show on the stand and online at www.convoy4heroes.org.uk.
