In September 2000, Ed Bicknell donated various Dire Straits awards and other rare items for a charity auction. The auction was held on the homepage of
Mark Knopfler News and closed on 30th September. Ed gave all the money he made from this auction to the charity. I was one of the lucky winning bidders and I won the Brothers in Arms platinum award from Israel which I received on 27th October 2000. Below is a picture of the award and the "Letter of Authenticity" from Damage Management Ltd signed by Ed Bicknell.


I want to thank Ed Bicknell for donating this award and Terry Kilburn of MKNews for his involvement to make this possible.
