Dann has an image around Hobart of being a “Man about Town” who did some hard time on military deployments to far away places with strange sounding names. He also bleated to a TV News Channel about how tough it was in the Army, because others were mean towards him. That should not have concerned a battle hardened, often deployed Cavalry Trooper like Guy Luther Dann, the problem is, that in reality, he is a fraud, liar and wannabe.
In the photo he is wearing:
1 Australian Active Service Medal 1975
2 Afghanistan Medal
3 Iraq Medal
4 NATO Medal with Clasp ISAF
According to people who served with Dann he spent from July 2007 until August 2010 in the Army. After basic training he served with the 2nd Cavalry Regiment. Despite the rack of four medals he wears, former members from his unit advise that he earned no medals at all. In addition, during his interview with the TV News Channel he said "He was expecting to be, one day, deployed overseas to fight for his country", that expectation was never realised.
During his mundane service he was an administrative burden who never fitted in, and spent time as a detainee at the Australian Defence Correctional Establishment in Holsworthy, New South Wales.
Soon after departing the Army he was known to get around Hobart wearing his old uniforms to town and to parties, and in the manner of most wannabes, he has told the big lie that:
“He knows confidential things and the Army has paid him out for his silence”
In fact Dann was an ill disciplined Trooper (the equivalent of a Private Soldier). His work was ineffectual, and he could not work without close supervision. Can you imagine a person with those credentials “Knowing confidential things” and to suggest that the Army would pay a person to “Keep quiet” is laughable?
On ANZAC Day 2013 Dann may have cut a dashing figure wearing a suit, and four campaign medals and telling the lies necessary support his behaviour, but don’t be fooled. Guy Luther Dann is an ex Serviceman, he is not a returned Veteran.
He is a liar, fraud and a wannabe who has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 Part VII Sections 80A and 80B
80A Falsely representing to be a returned soldier
80B Improper use of service decorations
Both of these offences have a maximum penalty of a $3,300 fine or six months imprisonment or both.
Tasmanian State Police have been advised of Dann’s offences and we hope, like many other wannabes have been; he will be arraigned, before a Magistrate and penalized. If that doesn’t happen, at least he will remain exposed on this web site as liar, fraud and wannabe.
